Child Abuse in the United States
According to the US Department of Health and Human Services 1840 children died from abuse and neglect in 2019. (Source: American SPCC). Article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that “everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.” Does that seem enough to you?
We believe that Article 3 is not enough. We believe that we as humans have an innate and inalienable right to live without the threat of violence. We call it the Right to Peace.
We are all born equal. Regardless of our age, gender, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or disabilities we all have the right to live in a world free of threats and violence because of who we are.
We could not help 1840 children in 2019 but we can help 175,000 other children that are the victims of physical or sexual abuse in the United States alone. If you think that it is wrong that 5 children died every day because of abuse and neglect, maybe you believe in human rights and maybe you will stand up for them.
Violence is always wrong. Support the Right to Peace Foundation.
