The focus of this year's virtual conference is collaboration. By working together, we make a bigger impact in the prevention of child sexual abuse.

For that reason, the Moore Center for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse and Darkness to Light are teaming up to offer their annual prevention events, Child Sexual Abuse: A Public Health Perspective and IGNITE 2021, presented by the Monique Burr Foundation for Children (MBF), in a single virtual event. This collaboration will expand the event to three days and includes three tracks: ENGAGE, ENACT, & EMBED. 

These three tracks speak to the foundation for protecting children from abuse. By engaging in prevention conversations, enacting prevention policies, and embedding prevention practices where children live, learn, and play, we can positively impact protective behaviors that keep children safe. Topics within the three tracks will focus on reducing stigma, increasing accountability and resources, addressing systematic changes for unique and diverse populations, and integrating accessible technology into prevention best practices.

Whether you are a child advocate that works with an organization or independently, a public health professional, prevention professional, or wanting to learn more about protecting children from sexual abuse, you will find something for you at our virtual conference.


Moore Center attendees will be offered free access to keynote presentations, special group presentations, receptions, and select breakout sessions. 

Speakers will include a diverse group of international foundations, experts, and survivors, to share their unique perspectives and important considerations as we work to prevent child sexual abuse.
