|Get the Facts About Child Abuse|
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. 1 in 10 children suffer from child maltreatment and 1 in 16 children suffer from sexual abuse. Nearly 1 in 10 children are witnesses to family violence.
Child abuse can have damaging effects not only on the children who suffer it, but on communities that must address the aftermath of abuse, but you can help make a difference.
Safe Horizon's Child Advocacy Centers provide healing, hope, and justice to more than 4,000 children each year. 60% of all reports of abuse came from teachers, law enforcement, legal representatives or social service providers: adults who took action to protect children.
For today's Daily Action, learn the facts about child abuse and how you can help children in need.

Voting with our wallets will mean refusing to buy these products. We can show governments and markets that GMOs are not welcome.
For today's Secondary Action, take a stand against dangerous GMOs and pledge to go GMO-free today.
