Safety Awareness Materials Now Available in 19 Languages
School is in and we are happy to report that after translating our Safety Awareness Education Activity Pages and Speak Out! posters into a total of 11 languages last year, we have now added 8 additional languages to reach as many children as possible and, of critical importance, their home and family members.
This was made possible by a generous grant from the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
While our initial focus was the Greater Bay Area, we quickly became aware of additional language needs for the K-18 California Public School system, so we have included specific languages reflecting the diverse cultural mixes of other California counties: French, German, Hebrew, Japanese, Korean, Persian, Polish, and Portuguese.
We are overwhelmed by the positive response to these multilingual tools, and the opportunity that they provide in allowing diverse communities to access information and participate in these important conversations.
We recognize that there are additional communities yet to be reached, and look forward to expanding our scope and are continuing our translation and outreach efforts to include Hmong, ASL, Braille, and more in the near future.
Safety Awareness Education for Adults: Online Train the Trainers Coming Soon!
We are working on a series of online Train the Trainers videos to be hosted on our website for easy access.
Adult education is essential to achieving our mission of raising awareness and preventing abuse. Our efforts have come about as a direct result of requests for more and better resources from those who are most likely to interact with children who have been abused. A shortage of resources at the county level leaves room for our organization to make a big difference.
PIPSPEAK was created to bring you relevant food for thought to keep the conversation on child abuse prevention timely.

Here Mary Graw Leary, a former prosecutor and a professor at The Catholic University of America School of Law, speaks to why child sexual abuse seems to flourish in institutional settings.
Partners in Prevention is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since 2010 we have worked to increase awareness of the effects of child abuse and neglect and to promote solutions by supporting prevention services within a wide range of communities.
