About Stand to Protect

We focus on adult education surrounding child sexual abuse prevention in Cass and Clay counties.

Perpetrators of child sexual abuse use profound manipulation to enforce secrecy, often overpowering abilities a child might have to disclose. We help adults see common abuser behaviors and learn 10 protection steps that empower kids, bring greater safety and lower risk. We teach through powerful and positive one-hour sessions at youth organizations, businesses, churches, schools, PTAs, service clubs or community settings.

This content is based upon evidence in research literature and shaped by collective experiences of Red River Children’s Advocacy Center, Cass and Clay County Social Services, Prevent Child Abuse ND, and Sanford Center for Biobehavioral Research. Leadership for the collaborative work of Stand to Protect is provided by Dakota Medical Foundation.
