Today we celebrate the courage of LeBron, a 9 year-old boy who was abused by his biological mother. Here, Tina, a Victim Witness Advocate in the Child Protection Unit, stands with and supports him. LeBron and his siblings deserve a million likes for the bravery they have shown and we thank them for being a part of the fight against child abuse. ❤️ #NowYouSee #childabuseawareness #childrensadvocacycenter #sexualabuse #believe #brave #boston #inspire #survivor #resilient #courage #beautiful #ibelieve #ibelieveyou #childsexualabuse #sexualabuse #sexualassault #childprotection #survivors #speak #speakup @suffolkda

This is Kirsten, a law school summer intern working in the Child Protection Unit. She is standing with Venessa, who was in court last week watching the offender in her case plead guilty to multiple charges. Venessa and two other women spoke up about what happened when they were young girls and because of their bravery, others are now safe. We thank them for speaking for themselves and for all survivors of sexual abuse. #NowYouSee #strong #survivor #childabuse #childsexualabuse #sexualabuse #sexualassault #speak #inspire #courage #boston #brave #speakup

We are excited to welcome back former Victim Witness Advocate Halie Proulx, now a Family Advocate and Social Worker for the Children’s Advocacy Center of Suffolk County. Halie is committed to supporting and empowering survivors and is proud to stand with Lola who spoke up about sexual and physical abuse in her home. We thank them both for helping in the fight against child abuse. #NowYouSee #boston #childabuseawareness #sexualabuse #endchildabuse #childabuseprevention #childrensadvocacycenter #childabuse #childprotection #abuse #abuseawareness #courage #strong #brave #inspire #inspiration #speak #speakup

#NowYouSee today at the Boston “They Fought We Ride” Motorcycle Run in Revere. Thank you to Boston Police Officer Roberto La Colla for standing with and supporting “Dave” who was sexually abused by his hockey coach while growing up. Dave’s family says, “Don’t turn away. You can help give strength to others because together we are stronger.” #childabuseawareness #speak #sexualassaultawareness #sexualabuse #strong #survivor #inspire #courage #speakup #endchildabuse #abuse #boston #revere #motorcyclerun #nowyousee
