Be One with Courage.

One with Courage, a national campaign proudly offered by the West Virginia Child Advocacy Network and MCCAC, focuses on the courage it takes to talk about child abuse. You can help — learn the signs, share this information, and be the One with Courage to make a difference.

Child sexual abuse is a crime of secrecy, which tragically breeds within our communities because it’s difficult to talk about. That’s why conversation is the most effective tool we have to eradicate child abuse. You can be the One with Courage to inspire others to talk openly about it.
