Fresno advocate spreads awareness about child abuse

A Fresno advocate is using Child Abuse Awareness Month to get the word out about an issue that many don't like to talk about.

"It's absolutely critical to talk about it because silence doesn't protect anybody except for the perpetrators," said co-founder of Breaking The Silence, Dakota Draconi. "Breaking the silence is the only way to stop the cycle of pain. Say something, do something. people want to think it's not their business and it's not their problem, but child abuse is everybody's business and everybody's problem."

Speak for the Children (featuring open mic for survivors and a survivor medallion ceremony)
