Advocacy begins with awareness. That’s why the Just Be Foundation offers seminars to equip parents, teachers, and citizens with the knowledge they need to protect the children in their lives.
The Murder of Innocence:
The Truth about Sexual Abuse and the Catholic Church
For years, our communities taught our children about “stranger danger.” Tragically, 90% of sexual predators are in their victim’s circle of friends, family, and neighbors. Nine times out of ten, danger comes from someone the child knows…and may even trust.
The Murder of Innocence helps us understand how parents, members of society, and child abuse advocates can make the world safer for the most vulnerable among us. It shows readers insight into the warning signs they need to look for and what to do when they suspect or discover abuse occurring.
This seminar is primarily for parents, teachers, and the general public.
Let’s Protect Our Predators:
How America’s Laws Hurt Child Sex Victims
One of the biggest challenges to protecting our children is, ironically, the court system that is supposed to serve them. When it comes to prosecuting child sex offenders, our legislative systems are woefully inadequate and decades behind. While some states have enacted legislation to address the gap between law and reality, the vast majority of children in America live under antiquated laws that do more to protect predators than their victims.
What needs to change? What has worked elsewhere? What advocacy strategies can individuals and organizations embark on? Let’s Protect Our Predators highlights the gaps in our legal systems as well as the few pieces of modern legislation that try to rectify the courts’ shortcomings.
This seminar is ideal for activists, law enforcement professionals, and policy makers.
End Child Sex Abuse at Work:
The Policies Corporate America Needs
Child sex abuse is shockingly common. An estimated one in four American women and one in six American men are adult survivors of some form of being sexually abused while young.
And yet there are virtually no companies that offer their employees anything in the form of support. Organizations often offer benefits to their workers for medical emergencies, family tragedies, or child adoption support…but nothing if their employee suffered as a child themselves.
How can your organization support adult survivors? What policies does your human resources need to effectively address this issue? Especially if your company or non-profit organization works with children, what simple strategies and practices can you follow to prevent such abuse? End Child Sex Abuse at Work provides your leaders and managers with the information, ideas, and insights to craft an effective child sex abuse policy framework.
Ideal for business owners, senior-level executives, and human resource personnel.
