Ever notice that sometimes we don't talk about important things because they are hard to talk about? For the past two weeks, Oprah has been discussing child sexual abuse. She interviewed child molesters both male and female and I applaud her for that. But when do we talk about prevention?
How do we prevent child sexual abuse? The answer is education. I am a prosecutor of child abuse and sex crimes in New York City and wrote a children's book called My Body Belongs to Me to help prevent child sexual abuse by teaching children ages 3-8 that their bodies are private and that it is OK to say no and tell someone right away.
I need your help. We created a video about the book that we plan to launch next week. I want to write an accompanying press release that will really turn some heads - get people to say "Hey this book can really make a difference and we need to do something now." Yesterday the book was reviewed by the Sacramento Book Review and it was called a major public service. How good is a public service if we can't get it to the public?
All ideas are welcome. What angle should we use to get the most mileage? What headline is going to make them jump into action? Thank you in advance for your time and creativity. I know this talented group of ladies is sure to come up with something incredible. Here is the new video -
All the best,
Author, My Body Belongs to Me
