An estimated one billion children experience some form of violence each year. From detained migrant families and children separated at the U.S.-Mexico border to sexual violence against girls in the midst of armed conflict to pervasive corporal punishment in schools and homes, violence against children has devastating consequences that reach across the lifespan and across generations. 
  • Learn more about this urgent global crisis.

  • Protect the right of every child to be safe from violence.
