Together we can stop child abuse

Pledge

I believe that every child deserves a safe and healthy childhood, but one child is confirmed as abused or neglected every 15 minutes in Massachusetts. We can, and must, do better for ALL Massachusetts kids. We CAN stop child abuse, but only if we step up together.

By signing this pledge, I am committing to take at least one action in 2018:

In joining the growing movement to stop child abuse in Massachusetts, I am standing up for the most vulnerable among us and saying YES to safe kids and healthy futures. It takes a village. We are that village.
