Elizabeth J. LetourneauWe're gearing up for a busy and productive fall at the Moore Center for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse.

Since our April symposium, we've been developing three separate child sexual abuse prevention interventions, and we've continued to gain interest from the media with our message that child sexual abuse is preventable, not inevitable.

In addition, we were featured in the media focusing on the civil commitment of sex offenders, how the criminal justice system treats youth charged with sex crimes, and commenting on a treatment program in Germany for those brave enough to admit an unwanted attraction to young children and ask for help.

I’m delighted that we’ve accomplished so much in such little time, thanks in part to our supporters.
Research Accomplishments:

  • Increased research participation by 22 percent in our youth and family survey study
  • Awarded a $350,000 grant to assess whether discrepancies exist in the juvenile justice system
  • Launched our newest research project, Help Wanted, on September 29
  • Welcomed Kenny Feder to the team as a PhD candidate 

Media Wins:

Congratulations to our founding donor
Stephen Moore was named chair of the Health Advisory Board at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. He was mentioned in the Baltimore Business Journal’s People on the Move section in July.
We believe that child sexual abuse is preventable, not inevitable
Our vision is a world without child sexual abuse. While we’re working hard to raise our visibility and educate others about our Center, we can’t do this alone. Please donate to our Center’s research that seeks to end child sexual abuse by preventing it in the first place.
