The Alliance for Children’s Justice

The Alliance for Children’s Justice (ACJ) is a North Dakota statewide multi-disciplinary coalition of professionals and parents dedicated to quality child protection services in North Dakota. ACJ is sponsored by the North Dakota Child Protection Services in the Children and Family Services Division of the ND Department of Human Services through a grant from the Children’s Trust Fund.
The Alliance has a vision that every adult feel equal weight for the care and protection of all children. ACJ’s goal is that all North Dakota children be free of sexual abuse. To meet this goal, all adults must do what they can to prevent child sexual abuse.

And How Are the Children?
The Alliance has chosen to use the traditional greeting of the African Masai to reflect the Alliance’s vision that every adult feel equal weight for the care and protection of all children. Among the Masai, even people without children would give the traditional answer, “The children are well,” meaning life is good.
“And how are the children?” is all we need to ask to determine whether life is good in North Dakota. The answer to the question depends on whether children are free from sexual abuse. Every North Dakota adult must protect children so that the answer can be, ”The children are well. They are all free from sexual abuse.”
If you would like to wear the Alliance’s dove pin asking, “And how are the children?”, please email us.
