THE BRAVE PROJECT
The Brave Project is Changing the Narrative of Child Sexual Abuse Awareness in Black and Ethnic Minority Communities.
What is The Brave Project?
The BRAVE Project was created by Angela, during her time as a Director of Programs of an inner-city Community Center, she discovered there were 152 registered sex offenders living within a 1-mile radius of the Youth Center where she worked at the time.
The goal of the project is to empower children to use their voice to speak up without shame against anyone who tries to victimize or has victimized them, turning awareness into action.
A large body of research suggests that intervention at the neighborhood level is likely to prevent child maltreatment. The BRAVE Project collaborates with schools and community centers to bring sexual abuse awareness education to students in grades 3-5 and was the catalyst for the birth of her organization HER IMPACT
