“Kids don’t have money so no-one is going to invest in protecting them unless we advocate for them.”

Dr. Jennifer Fraser is renowned for her work in calling to action those participating in the fight against child abuse, specifically that done by teachers and coaches. In this powerful talk, Dr. Fraser discusses the tendency of major sports organizations to protect abusers as opposed to the victims, implementations of anonymous reporting systems, and the need for a mass change in a system that has been allowing the denial of abuse for decades. As well, Dr. Fraser presents reasoning for the ‘under the rug’ approach to abuse, and different ways to solve this epidemic
