Darkness to Light Stewards of Children is an organization dedicated to empowering people to prevent child sexual abuse. Its programs raise awareness by educating adults about the steps they can take to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly when faced with the reality of child sexual abuse.
I’m a certified instructor for Darkness to Light, and I train facilitators. I love this work! Why? Because it allows me to teach people what they need to know, so they can return to their communities and educate others about how to keep kids safe. Darkness to Light is proven, evidence-based, and it works.
Here’s another reason why I’m such a big fan of this program.
Ten years ago it wasn’t easy for me to talk about myself and the painful abuse I suffered as a child. But I was deeply committed to this mission. It had become a goal of mine. I knew, without a doubt, this kind of training would have made all the difference in my childhood if the adults around me had known how to respond and keep me safe. Darkness to Light gave me the tools I needed to achieve this goal and become a confident public speaker.
But we all need to do our part. Join the movement, get educated, and share what you’ve learned. You could be saving a child’s life. Maybe a child in your family. If you’re interested in more information about Darkness to Light, you’ll find it here: http://www.d2l.org.
As long as children are being sexually abused in this country, I’ll continue to provide Darkness to Light training wherever I can. If you’re in San Diego, my next facilitator training session is April 11th. There’s still room if you’d like to join me.

Remember, we are stronger together. We really are.
