Dedicated to Change

Sexual abuse and the mistreatment of children may usually occur in secret, behind closed doors, but they have very public consequences. Victims, their families, and their communities pay a very high price decades after the violence ends.

Child USA cuts through the shame and the secrecy to gather and analyze the data behind abuse and neglect. Child USA presents this information to legislators and other policy makers so they can make decisions we believe will build a child-centered society that will help kids thrive – and hold adults who harm them accountable. Your donation will make that possible.


Laws for Child Protection

Statutes of Limitation for Child Sex Abuse; Age of Majority, Consent, and Marriage; Religious Liberty Statutes; and Medical Neglect Laws

CHILD USA Founder and CEO, Professor Marci Hamilton, comments on the Seven Changes that Would Empower the #MeToo Movement.  We must hold abusers accountable in order to ensure lasting change.  As Hamilton explains, in the wake of so many heroic disclosures, like those of McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, and Corey Feldman, we are in a position to protect the vulnerable and punish those who abuse their power to sexually intimidate children and adults alike.  Roy Moore's loss shows that we, as a society, are ready to take the necessary steps.
