Make a Pledge. Share Your Story.

We Want To Hear Your Defender Story was established to help lead the public discussion about the prevalence and prevention of childhood sexual abuse. Our goal for sharing your stories is to help others find ways to help others find a way to be a voice in their community. Every Defender has something to contribute and although every story is different, readers will find strength in your voice.

“I said ‘Somebody should do something about that.’ Then I realized I am somebody.”

What To Share

Other Defenders want to hear how you have chosen to defend innocence. They want to be inspired and know they are not alone in this fight.

We want your story to be your own authentic journey – how you are defending innocence, but we would like you to follow a few guidelines to help us with our mission.

  • If you are sending a video of your story please make it between 1-5 minutes long.
  • If you are writing your story, please have it be no longer than 800 words.
  • Please share a breakthrough moment that was a turning point for you or your community. 

If you are sending a video file that is too large to send over your email, please send it as a zip file or use a free online service to store the file and provide us with the link. Here are some options – Google Drive; Dropbox; Box
