The statistics are clear 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys  will be sexually abused by the time they turn 18.  What can we do to raise awareness and make our kids, camps, schools and synagogues tough targets?  How do we  recognize the signs and empower kids and adults without creating a culture of fear?  How do we make sure our communities become and remain safe spaces?
