As Sexual Assault Awareness Month and National Child Abuse Prevention Month approach in April, Brave Step challenges the community to “Color It Blue.”
It’s estimated that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 13 boys in the United States experience child sexual abuse.
Ninety-one percent of child sexual abuse perpetrators are individuals known by the child victim or their family members.
Every 68 seconds someone is sexually assaulted in the United States. Every 9 minutes, that victim is a child.
One hundred percent of us are impacted by sexual violence.
“Color It Blue is Brave Step’s signature campaign to encourage survivors, loved ones, allies, and the community to embody advocacy and initiate new conversations about the pervasive issue of sexual violence,” said Dr. Lisa Littlejohn Hill, board president. “Each day, we see the life-altering mental, physical, social, financial and spiritual impact of sexual violence, and it is our responsibility to challenge the community to be brave and make a difference. Color It Blue is an easy way to take that first step.”
