One With Courage is a Michigan and National effort to recognize the courage it takes to talk about child sexual abuse, the courage it takes child victims to come forward and talk about their abuse, and the courage it takes adults to acknowledge this problem, learn the signs and symptoms and engage in a dialog. Please view the short videos below for additional information and then check out the resources on the remainder of this page.
Often only one adult with Courage is needed to support a child who has found the Courage to Stand Up and Step Forward to report abuse. After viewing these videos, please review the remainder of this page for additional information.
