2023 Zero Abuse Project Summit
Embassy Suites Lake Buena Vista
There are 39 million child sexual abuse survivors in the U.S. today. The challenge of providing them and their families with support is enormous. So, too, is the task of helping law enforcement, child protection services, and others contribute to this fight.
Zero Abuse Project is leveraging cutting-edge technology to create an artificial intelligence tool that will help expose predators and those who cover up for them in large institutions.
Incentivizing institutions to root out child sexual predators also requires a change in the law. Our team is fighting for these changes and supporting lawmakers to pursue justice.
To protect children from abuse and sexual assault, by engaging people and resources through a trauma-informed approach of education, research, advocacy, and advanced technology.
Your donations provide support to Zero Abuse Project and directly fund programs that will help protect children. Help us build a world where every child is free from abuse.
