I KNOW and TELL
Seth Meyers teams up with the Granite State Children’s Alliance
Did you know that in the state of New Hampshire, only 1 in 10 incidents of child abuse are ever reported? #iKNOWandTELL
The Granite State Children’s Alliance, New Hampshire’s network of Child Advocacy Centers, served 2,359 child victims of abuse last year. But with only 10% of victims reporting, we know there are 21,231 child victims still waiting for help. So we’ve teamed up with Seth Meyers and the Crimes Against Children’s Research Center at UNH to build a new public responsibility movement to educate Granite Staters to KNOW the signs of abuse and TELL responsible authorities.
It’s important to KNOW, for the 21,231 NH children who were victims of child abuse last year, ANY information reported would have been better than none.
- KNOW that you can report it anonymously.
- KNOW that any information you can provide is better than no information.
- You don’t have to KNOW it’s abuse….you only need to SUSPECT abuse.
Granite Staters, don’t stand by when a child needs your help. If you KNOW or suspect abuse, step up and TELL responsible authorities. Leave the investigating to our experts who KNOW how to care for the most vulnerable in our communities.
We can all find the courage to report abuse, KNOW & TELL. Anonymously report what you see by calling DCYF at (800) 894-5533 or your local Police – For emergencies Dial 911.
