It happened to Oprah, it happened to Ellen, it happened to Monique, and it happened to 42,000,000 other reported survivors in the United States. Child sexual abuse is an epidemic affecting 1 in 4 girls, 1 in 6 boys — and only 1 in 10 ever tell. 93% of children are abused by someone they know and the median age is 9.
According to Angela Williams, who details her own journey from victim of child sexual abuse to victor over her circumstances in the new book From Sorrows to Sapphires, “Child sexual abuse is a pandemic in our society — and it is time we face this pandemic with courage and solutions.” VOICE Today will host the 2nd Annual Legacy Ball benefiting VOICE Today’s expansion of child sexual abuse and exploitation awareness, prevention and healing programs and resources.
Details on the black tie gala can be found at www.voicetoday.org/legacyball.
