Movement Associate

Brave Movement (New Global Movement)

Background

Childhood sexual violence (CSV) is one of the largest silent pandemics of our time. It is a problem that festers in homes, online, and in communities in every country on Earth. To end this silent pandemic, a new global networked movement of survivors and allies is being created to drive advocacy and campaigns as a powerful voice for transformative change.

Working with the direction of global survivors and allied partners, this newly forming Brave Movement will demand an end to the pandemic of sexual violence through advocacy for bold public policy solutions and campaigns to shift societal norms, eradicate survivor stigma and break the conspiracy of silence that enables sexual violence to continue. Our movement is mobilizing survivors and allies that are globally connected, nationally coordinated, and locally grounded.
