HELPING US HELP EACH OTHER
Support Over Silence for KIDS is a call to action, and an opportunity for community members to develop the skills to confidently support caregivers and their children during challenging moments.
HOW WE BEGAN
Support Over Silence for KIDS was founded after the launch of No More Abuse, part of a national campaign to end relationship violence and sexual assault. 73% of the more than 400 community members at the launch event committed to speaking up when witnessing or hearing disrespectful, controlling or abusive behavior, but most of them didn’t know how. Support Over Silence for KIDS gives them the tools to do help them do that.
“Support Over Silence for KIDS provides helping professionals and community members with the culturally appropriate bystander intervention training they need to support caregivers.”
