State and local support of Darkness to Light has made a huge difference in our mission to end child sexual abuse. It takes caring people to foster a commitment for real change on the community and state levels.
One of the best examples of this is in Georgia. The Georgia Center for Child Advocacy set an initial goal to provide training to 5% of the adults in every county in the state. Often referred to as “tipping point,” the drive is to create a groundswell that forms the momentum for larger cultural change. So far, they’ve made amazing progress!
With Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children training provided to more than 56,000 adults in communities throughout the state, Georgia now has one of the largest community-based initiatives in the nation. In fact, four counties have already trained more than 5% of their adult population.
The Georgia Initiative is a fantastic example of what can be accomplished by a committed group of child advocates. Let’s continue to encourage others to do the same.
