Safe & Sound is a children’s advocacy organization based in San Francisco with a mission to prevent child abuse and reduce its devastating impact. With the stress and trauma of COIVD-19, California can implement ways to protect kids, strengthen families and build communities. To help communities take action, Safe & Sound has updated its research on The Economics of Child Abuse: A Study of California & Its Counties. They will be sharing the most recent data regarding important characteristics within each community — Community Protective Factors — that research shows are linked to lower rates of child maltreatment. Community Protective Factors include fostering Equitable Access to Essential Needs; Social Support and Connection; Social Contract; Racial and Social Justice; and Support for Building Individual Protective Factors.
