Authentic Voices of ND provides opportunities for
survivors and others impacted by any form of child sexual
abuse, child abuse or neglect to educate adults and protect
children by sharing their voice.
Preventing – child
sexual abuse, child abuse and neglect
Protecting – children from child sexual abuse, child
abuse and neglect
Healing – adults and children who have been affected
by child sexual abuse, child abuse or neglect.
We are your teachers, bankers, musicians, secretaries,
social workers, physicians and neighbors. Yet, we were once
scared children whose bodies and minds bore the brunt of
abuse and neglect. We still struggle with the pain. The
memories still haunt us. Now it’s our turn to save children.
You can be a Voice for children by shedding light on this
We invite you to join a developing group of people whose
lives have been directly affected by child sexual abuse,
child abuse or neglect. Together we can shed light on this
silent crisis. Children are the only constituency that
cannot advocate for themselves, so we must be their Voice.
It is time for the silence to stop. Our Voices in large
numbers will make the difference for children.
Speaking up is what membership is about. Our society tends
to ignore child abuse or to avoid discussion of it. We can
never end child abuse and neglect until people recognize it
and help in the process. It is not a task that can be
accomplished by the professionals without the broad support
of people who are or have been affected.
