Sexual violence against children and adolescents (SVAC) 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, the brave movement, a new global networked movement of survivors and allies has been launched. The aim of the brave movement is to drive advocacy and campaigns as a powerful voice for transformative change.
Working with the direction of global survivors and allied partners, this new movement demands an end to the pandemic of sexual violence through: (1) advocacy for bold public policy solutions; and (2) campaigns to shift societal norms, eradicate survivor stigma and break the conspiracy of silence that enables sexual violence to continue.
