Million March Against Child Abuse: Walks to Raise Awareness and Ask for Tougher Sentencing for Violent Crimes Against Children in the U.S.
Date:4/12/2013

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) April 12, 2013

Million March Against Child Abuse (MACA) is a non-partisan, grass roots, nationwide effort to raise awareness of the magnitude of child abuse, to educate the masses and ask lawmakers for tougher sentencing in violent crimes against the nation’s children.

The walk is spearheaded by Lin Seahorn, Founder of Children Without a Voice (CWAV) out of Atlanta, Ga. (Pronounced C-WAVE). “Children are the world’s greatest natural resource and should be protected more than anything else on earth”, stated Seahorn. “We have to break the silence around the magnitude of crimes against children right here in the U.S., educate the masses, hold lawmakers accountable for taking these crimes seriously and keeping violent offenders in prison where they belong. We are asking everyone to join in the streets on April 22nd.” -Seahorn

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month
There are nearly 3 million reported child abuse cases each year. However, experts believe the actual number is closer to 9 million as most go unreported. At a recent congressional hearing, experts testified they believe nearly 10 children die each day in the U.S. as a result of child abuse. One out of 6 boys and 1 out of 4 girls will be sexually molested by a close and trusted person before the age of 18.
