Foster youth face a high risk of s*x trafficking, and a federal audit shows states may not be doing enough to protect them.

“T Ortiz, who survived trafficking and now works as an advocate and policy consultant, spoke at an event to raise awareness about children affected by s*x trafficking. A recent government audit discovered that states frequently didn't comply with a law. This law says they should check foster kids for signs of s*x trafficking when they come back after being missing.” Read more here:

The theme of Sexual Assault Awareness Month for April 2024 is “Building Connected Communities.” – a campaign that helps us reduce the likelihood of s*xual abuse, assault, and harassment in our communities.

At the center of Building Connected Communities is ensuring our communities are safe, inclusive, and equitable. We recognize that how we talk about s*xual violence significantly impacts survivors, their families, our communities, and society. As such, we must strive to create strong, connected communities that take care of one another and make decisions to ensure the safety and well-being of others to end s*xual violence.

Stay tuned as we continue to share more resources ahead of April. We know that one month alone isn’t enough to solve the serious and widespread issue of s*xual violence. However, the attention April generates is an opportunity to energize and expand prevention efforts throughout the year.

The Child Victims Act of 2023 removed the statute of limitations for child s*xual abuse cases in Maryland. Charles Richardson, of Baltimore, shared his story of s*xual abuse in a Catholic church as a teenager.

In the US the race or ethnicity of clergy abuse victims is not generally tracked publicly by the Catholic Church. With that, the full scope of clergy s*x abuse and its effects on communities of color is unknown. Experts argue that cases of clergy abuse among African Americans are especially underreported, adding to the trauma of an already vulnerable population. Read more here:

Black survivors have been nearly invisible in the Catholic Church s*xual abuse crisis — even in Baltimore, home to a historic Black Catholic community.
