Anyone on this site
We choose the issue of child abuse because we feel like its a very serious issue that has huge consequences later on in a child's life. They could grow up to continue the abuse sexual or physical. Statistics show they are more likely to use drugs/alcohol, have mental illness, and troubles function as successful adults. Our goal is to spread the word in this community because people living in an affluent community like Marin may think this isn't an issue or want to ignore it. Our next steps are reaching out to individuals and groups in our community that are already working on the issue and see what can do help their efforts and start our own projects. Honestly every person in Marin should care because the abuse could be happening their child, grandchild, cousin, niece/nephew, neighbor, or best friend. Also, the abuse leaves mental and emotion scares on these children who grow up to be adults who live in this community and could negatively impact it with reckless behavior due to trauma from the abuse.
