Example Post: During my 30 years serving children and families, I have developed a deep appreciation and understanding of community prevention efforts to reduce child abuse. Child sexual abuse is among the most egregious events that can happen to a child, and the report released today by Illuminate Colorado provides new insights into what we all can do to help prevent such tragedies. The Office of Colorado’s Child Protection Ombudsman is appreciative of the information gathered by Illuminate and supports their recommendation of investing in strategies that can build strong community awareness around this issue.” –Child Protection Ombudsman of Colorado Stephanie Villafuerte

Example Post: This generation of Coloradans can protect the next by educating themselves on how to create safer communities where everyone is actively thinking about how to prevent children from being sexually abused. We need to give all Coloradans the skills they need to protect children and create communities where children have the opportunity to grow up healthy, happy and safe.

Example Post: Across Colorado, and in our own backyards, child sexual abuse is a major public health concern which must be addressed as a core element of child safety and family well-being. Ultimately, building awareness, knowledge, skills, and confidence with adults, who are supported by communities, systems, and policies to create safe environments leverages the best of the evidence and expertise available in the prevention of child sexual abuse.

Example Post: Each one of us has a collective responsibility to work together to shift social norms, promote training and encourage practice transformation to prevent child sexual abuse in Colorado. This is an opportunity to put the responsibility back where it belongs, with adults, and give all Coloradans the skills they need to protect children and create communities where children have the opportunity to grow up healthy, happy and safe.
