 CHILD ABUSE

I have the right to protection

Approximately six children are reported abused and neglected in America every minute (more than 3 million abuse reports a year). (National Committee for Prevention of Child Abuse)

More than half the child victims of rape or sexual assault are age 12 or younger. (US Dept. of Justice)

Arizona ranks fifth nationally in the rate of children with substantiated reports of abuse and neglect, almost twice the national average. (Child Welfare League of America)

Young children are more likely to die of child abuse or neglect in the Phoenix metropolitan area than any other major metropolitan area in the country. (Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine)
