The issue /need we are addressing: Preventing Child Abuse & neglect and caring for its victims.
In America Children are suffering from a hidden epidemic of child abuse and neglect. Every year, 3.3 million reports of child abuse are made in the United States involving nearly 6 million children (a report can include multiple children).

Black Out Child Abuse January 23rd - 27th, 2012

The North Lincoln High School DECA club sponsored a "Black Out Child Abuse" event to inform area schools and the community of the harsh repercussions of child abuse and how easy it can be to educate those around us of the signs. For the week of January 23rd through January 27th, they sold wristbands and t-shirts at North Lincoln and Lincolnton High School in hopes of educating fellow students of child advocacy.

The week culminated with a basketball game against Lincolnton High School. All proceeds went to sponsor the items for a playroom in the Lincoln County Child Advocacy Center to accommodate teens/young adults with more advanced entertainment such as technology.

BBC Special:  America's child death shame

Due to the work of numerous children's advocacy groups, including the National Coalition to End Child Abuse Deaths (NCECAD) of which National Children’s Alliance is a founding member, the issue of child abuse and neglect deaths in the United States is beginning to attract both national and international media attention. The British Broadcasting Company (BBC) has just completed an investigative news report on the scope of the problem of child abuse fatalities in the United States.

Long overdue, it is hoped that the BBC's reporting of 'America's Child Death Shame' will help to prompt federal attention and a national strategy for combating the problem. We encourage you to continue speaking publicly on this issue if we can raise our voices together, we are more likely to be heard by the media, lawmakers and the general public.

This story begins airing today, October 17th, on BBC World News affiliates, including PBS and NPR stations in most American cities.
