Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Child Abuse Prevention, Crime & Law, Domestic Violence, Sexual Abuse Prevention, Spouse Abuse Prevention

Mission: We protect children by preventing childhood trauma; this significantly reduces taxpayer burdens.

Results: Our website is the most popular website focused on preventing ACEs. We ignite conversations by briefing the media. Our state chapters work with legislators across the country. Our first bill was introduced in Hawaii this year. It will be introduced in several more states next year. Visit our media page on our website to get a view of where we have been making an impact. We are building two community improvement projects where focused improvements in public policy can substantially eliminate child maltreatment.

Target demographics: Children

Direct beneficiaries per year: All children are at risk of child maltreatment. 66% in the US suffer enough childhood trauma to be permanently harmed.

Geographic areas served: Across the United States

Programs: The Stop Abuse Campaign prevents Adverse Childhood Experiences through public policy and public education. The US chooses to spend huge sums of money dealing with the consequences of abuse, like health and criminal justice costs. But the CDC's Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study proves that abuse cannot be undone. Fortunately, a lot is known about preventing abuse. And preventing abuse is what we do at the Stop Abuse Campaign. Come and say hello. Visit our website.

It's not only horrific to think but sad to know that victims of abuse are not only victimized by the offender but then again by our very own Judicial system. Our children do NOT deserve to be punished for being born to an abuser twice. Sometimes more, as the schools and other entities and organizations, that are not educated or care to be educated, are allowing this to happen. Unless you have endured the countless hours, days, and years of the family court system you may not be able to imagine that it is very capable of doing the things you are reading about, and they do it every day, in every State of the United States, This campaign will Stop the courts from continuing to pursue these outdated and biased standards the courts have come to live by and make our children safe, away from the hands of the abuser once and for all. This study and campaign are driven by today's updated and current findings based on the effects of abuse and its effects on our children. Stop the cycle of abuse, stop the family courts from doing more harm to innocent children that cannot speak for themselves and sometimes not allowed to. Help this cause, to help these children and families. There may be a day when you or someone close to you find yourself in the same situation and you wish the laws had changed. You do NOT want to put you and your children through what the family courts will force you to endure if it were to happen to you or your loved one today. These stories are very true, I have been there, and there are countless more that happen in the family courts every single day. Just breaking the cycle of abuse can change so many things, so please find it in your heart to help this organization, which is well educated in the field. Help the judges, lawyers, GAL's, schools, law enforcement etc. become better educated and understand the negative effects that the trauma of abuse takes on a child so you and/or your loved ones may never have to endure what others already have. It's time to STOP ALL ABUSE and it can't happen with one person. No one deserves to be hurt in any way, shape or form and when some children endure this type of treatment, from the actions that resulted from the years of abuse they have endured they, as adults, will continue to repeat the same cycle. For this, we can only blame ourselves, for not doing anything to change the way the system works today. I have been through the "system" I have read the statistics and I see the results of how the current system works today. It is NOT working and based on professionals and current statistics this is a better way. We need change and we need it NOW, for the next generation, for the cycle of Abuse to STOP.

Stop the Abuse puts a spotlight on Family Court corruption and wrongs, seldom spoken about in most circles.

I found this organization on Facebook, searching for others who are in a similar situation. As a protective mother, victim of DV. I got my kids taken from me, with an order of protection for 14 months. Parental alienation accusations were the only reason. A very good manipulation of the courts, since the only evidence of it was the fathers accusations of the kids not talking a word to him in 5 years of joint physical custody. The kids are suffering terribly. No child should be deprived of a parent or put in the middle. The stop Abuse Campaign is advocating for these kids. Using and encouraging studies to advocate to the courts to stop. I would welcome sharing my story as well as my now adult son, to emphasize that parental deprivation is abuse. Thank you stop Abuse Campaign.

I don't even remember how I heard of the Stop Abuse Campaign. Probably on social media or through Barry Goldstein' books. I have gone through a torturous custody battle with a exhusband who was sexually abused as a boy by his half uncle. Learning about this non-profit's outreach to institutions has given me hope that change will come and people in power will see that child abuse, domestic violence and community are intertwined in their states of health, happiness and prosperity. The Quincy Solution is Real and I hope to further their reach by advocating for them in my current hometown of Stockton, Ca. I have friends that wrote a book called The Bullying Antidote, connections to The Women's Coalition International, Jean Shinoda Bolen UN 5WCW and her efforts to heal womankind and humanity. My sister sings in Phantom of the Opera on Broadway and I tried to get them to donate but they are committed to Aids support. Domestic Violence and Child Abuse is a plague o n Society. It must STOP. Love to Melanie, Andrew and Barry.

As a parent, I appreciate everything the Stop Abuse Campaign has done to educate me on the signs and impact of abuse. Their fight for new legislation to protect abuse victims is nothing less than heroic.
