The Five Days of Action is a week designed to raise awareness and inspire adults to take action to protect children from sexual abuse.

We know the way parents and caregivers protect kids may look different in the current environment as they are adapting to new scenarios. The Five Days of Action is providing relevant, helpful resources for adults to navigate this time and continue to protect kids from sexual abuse. Get started below!

Keep Kids Safe Online 

Your kids are most likely spending more time on the internet or in front of a screen.

Keep Kids Safe

Your routine & annual plans may have changed due to COVID-19. How can you keep your kids safe & busy?

Be the Safe Adult

Being a safe adult means that a child can trust you to be there for them when they need help. 

Start the Conversation

The “What If?” game is a great opportunity to strengthen bonds with your kids that can ultimately help protect them from abuse. 

Don't Do It Alone

It's important to know how to respond to abuse & also know where to go if you need help.


Protecting Children During a Crisis

We often develop strategies that help to prevent child sexual abuse under our existing circumstances. But what happens if those circumstances change?
