Let's Silence The Violence Together
From the Founder, Marquita Burke-De Jesus
After traveling the world to work hands on with children who have been subjected to abuse and violence, I am convinced that the time for change is now. Sexual molestation, human trafficking, and child abuse are more prevalent now than ever, and I have become passionate about doing my part to advocate for change. Hear more of my story in my TEDx Talk heard here:
Silence the Violence is working to advocate for changes in legislation as well as provide forums for survivors of violence to share their stories. We are also working to partner with schools, parents, and community groups in an effort to teach children self-protection and empower parents to transform these alarming trends.
