KidSafe Foundation Comment on Jerry Sandusky’s Guilty Verdict


“This is an important day in the world of child safety. The survivors showed enormous strength to come forward and to be believed by a jury of Jerry Sandusky’s peers sends a clear message that the tide is changing. Children you will be believed! I hope that healing can begin and for all who have been abused by Jerry Sandusky and those who have yet to come forward from this case or any other.  I hope seeing Jerry Sandusky found guilty, may give them the strength to tell. The world has woken up to the fact that child abuse is an epidemic and those of us in the field of protecting children from harm will not let them ever sleep again. We will put more advocacy, awareness, training and education into prevention and always put the safety of children first. 95% of abuse and exploitation of children is preventable with education. All children deserve the right to be safe. KidSafe Foundation is on a mission to provide every child and adult with prevention education, so no child will ever be harmed again”                                                                                                                                              Sally Berenzweig, MEd, MA


“We hope Jerry Sandusky’s guilty verdict will help those who have been abused start their healing process and raise awareness of the importance of prevention education for all adults and children. Protecting children must be a priority. We are grateful to the jury for telling the world children YOU are believed and Justice will be served. Now is the time for all schools, institutions, organizations and parents to provide Prevention Education training to all adults who work with children. Show the world that you will put the safety of children first. Please reach out to KidSafe Foundation and we will help you.”                                                 Cherie Benjoseph, LCSW
