Because the prevalence of abuse in our society is alarming. Way too many kids are experiencing abuse and Steven wants to change that. In our country, each year more than 500,000 children suffer from serious neglect each year, more than 100,000 children are beaten or physically abused, and 68,000 children are raped or sexually abused. One in 5 girls is sexually abused before they are 18 years old. And experts say these figures reflect under-reporting. All abuse is wrong – whether emotional, verbal, physical or sexual. This is a big problem that demands a big voice. Steven brings his big voice to this cause.
