Tolson 4 TEARS* Cheers RAACE: Race Against Abuse of Children Everywhere
Thank you to RAACE.org for featuring author of Beyond the Tears: A True Survivor's Story, Lynn C. Tolson, in it's February 2015 newsletter.
RAACE stands for The Race Against Abuse of Children Everywhere. From the website: "A 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating child sexual abuse before it happens. Our mission is to raise public awareness and provide tools to help families protect children at home, in their community, and all over the world. Child sexual abuse is a silent epidemic that remains taboo and therefore thrives in the shadows of society. RAACE is dedicated to changing that, because we believe that preventing abuse starts with awareness."
Visit the RAACE website to see how the organization participates in a "variety of family-centric venues including concerts, picnics, community events, sporting events and the like, where our RAACE team members adorn our branded purple and gold to help us spread awareness and break the silence of the epidemic of child sexual abuse." You will find resources for parents, teens, and survivors at the site.
