Because of you, more kids are being protected, more adults survivors served !

NAASCA has a single purpose, to address issues related to childhood abuse and trauma including sexual assault, violent or physical abuse, emotional traumas and neglect .. and we do so from two specific perspectives

1) educating the public, especially as related to getting society over the taboo of discussing childhood sexual abuse, presenting the facts that show child abuse to be a pandemic, worldwide problem that affects everyone

2) offering hope for healing through numerous paths, providing many services to adult survivors of child abuse and information for anyone interested in the many issues involving prevention, intervention and recovery

Building a survivor community .. because together we can do what we cannot do alone.  
You're enjoying our 30 day campaign in April, Child Abuse Awareness month.
A sample poster / essay:

Sadly the vast majority of kids are, for a number of reasons, unlikely to speak up about their abuse. One study said as many as 9 out of 10 children turn 18 without telling. These children come into adulthood with the secret story of their untreated trauma as the weighty burden of their lives.

You're holding events all over the country for April, Child Abuse Awareness month.
Visit our  Calendar of Events tool where you’ll find we now carry non-recurring calendar event listings for everything we know of from around the world. This is where we list child abuse and trauma related gatherings like workshops, conferences, rallies, marches and so on. We have calendars for every state and province in North America and for virtually every country on earth. 

An easy way to gain an overview of what NAASCA's about is to visit the HIGHLIGHTS page on our web site. All our International services / tools / projects are FREE and are run by non-paid volunteer NAASCA family members. Please consider how you might become involved.

You're participating in our  Blue Ribbon Campaign  in April (and all year round, too). Wearing a Blue Ribbon is a sign of child abuse awareness. NAASCA hopes you’ll wear one every day, and to pass them out to others. We giving away FREE Blue Ribbons and "info cards" (4 or 5 per person) to anyone who writes for them, and we'll continue to provide them in  larger quantities  at less than our cost, perfect for family, friends, neighbors or community event.
Healing from child abuse and trauma can be a very lonely journey .. but you'll never be alone again, a day at a time, if you don't want to be !!
NAASCA belongs to no other group and receives no outside funding. We're self-supporting through our own members' voluntary contributions.
Please consider a one time or recurring donation.
Thanking you for all you do in the fight against child abuse and trauma and welcoming you to engage with your NAASCA family, I remain, as always,

Yours in service,

Bill Murray, founder and CEO
National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse.
