The North American Division recognizes that women and children, as well as men, are victims of abuse. God abhors abuse of EVERY kind, and we are working to prevent it.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church recognizes that abuse affects children, women, and men within the church and community. In response, the North American Division launched the enditnowNAD campaign to motivate your church and community to help break the cycle of abuse. You can launch this campaign on enditnow Emphasis Day, which is the last Sabbath in August, or on any other Sabbath that works for your church.
By launching an enditnow campaign, you can help raise awareness of this important issue. You can also turn your church into a safe place for victims.
THE HARD TRUTH
1 in 3 girls and 1 in 5 boys will be sexually abused before they turn 18.
More than 12 million women and men are victims of rape, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner each year.
Victims and their families are acquainted with the abuser in more than 90 percent of cases.
