How can we change the actions, minds and hearts of the victims and the offenders? Board Members of the Gylanic Education Trust are individuals who in their professional lives have long histories of working with victims of sexual abuse and assault. We recognize that to affect a change in this issue we must begin training all children at early ages the skills of awareness of inappropriate behavior and touch from family, acquaintances, or strangers along with sexual assault and abduction defense skills and dealing with bullies. This early training will teach all children that sexual assault is inappropriate and thus change potential victims and offenders.
Our schools through Common Core, Federally mandated Title IX, the Erin’s Law movement and Assembly Bill 2016 in California all address sexual abuse but those programs are mostly unfunded.
