Take Action: Include Child Sexual Abuse Prevention in SB5395

Washingtonians, please urge your state lawmakers to support child protection and sexual abuse prevention in SB5395 by including language that references child sexual abuse prevention instruction in grades K–3.

The CDC has identified child sexual abuse as a public health crisis that affects 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 13 boys. Child sexual abuse has lifelong damaging physical and mental health consequences.

Prevention is possible, and it’s vital that young people learn safety skills as a part of a comprehensive prevention program.

It’s critical that your lawmakers hear from you to help move SB5395 forward and advance child sexual abuse prevention.
