Advocacy begins with awareness. Sam Unglo offers keynote addresses, presentations, and seminars for victims of child sexual abuse, victims’ loved ones, leaders of companies, institutions, or organizations, churchgoers and society in general, lawmakers, and children, so that all are equipped to end child sexual abuse and to protect and nurture innocence. A few of the available presentation options are below:
Not Really Just about ‘Stranger Danger’
For years, our communities taught our children about “stranger danger.” Tragically, 90% of sexual predators are in their victim’s circle of friends, family, and neighbors. Nine times out of ten, danger comes from someone the child knows…and may even trust. “Not Really Just about ‘Stranger Danger’” helps parents, members of society, and child abuse advocates understand how they can make the world safer for the most vulnerable among us. Participants better understand the warning signs they need to look for and what to do when they suspect or discover abuse occurring.
Let’s Protect Our Predators: How America’s Laws Hurt Child Sex Abuse Victims
One of the biggest challenges to protecting our children is, ironically, the court system that is supposed to serve them. When it comes to prosecuting pedophiles, our legislative systems are woefully inadequate and decades behind. While some states have enacted legislation to address the gap between law and reality, the vast majority of children in America live under antiquated laws that do more to protect predators than their victims. What needs to change? What has worked elsewhere? What advocacy strategies can individuals and organizations embark on? “Let’s Protect Our Predators” highlights the gaps in our legal systems as well as the few pieces of modern legislation that try to rectify the courts’ shortcomings.
End Child Sexual Abuse via Workplace Education: The Policies Corporate America Needs
Child sexual abuse is shockingly common. An estimated one in four American women and one in six American men are adult survivors of some form of being sexually abused while young. Yet, there are virtually no companies that offer their employees anything in the form of support or ongoing education.
Organizations often offer benefits to their workers for medical emergencies, family tragedies, or child adoption support…but what about the ongoing conversation and voice for protecting children? How can your organization support adult survivors or prevent current children from being abused? What policies does your human resources need to effectively address this issue? Especially if your company or nonprofit organization works with children, what simple strategies and practices can you follow to prevent such abuse and to create awareness? “End Child Sexual Abuse via Workplace Education” provides your leaders and managers with the information, ideas, and insights to craft an effective child sex abuse policy framework.
