Mission Statement

Our mission is to end the sexual abuse of children within five generations. Through survivor leadership, community organizing, and public action, Generation Five works to interrupt and mend the intergenerational impact of child sexual abuse on individuals, families and communities. Rather than perpetuate the isolation of this issue, we integrate child sexual abuse prevention into social movements targeting family violence, economic oppression, and gender and cultural discrimination. It is our belief that meaningful community response is the key to effective prevention. As a key part of our mission, Generation Five collaborates with other organizations to ensure that accessible, culturally relevant services are available to both survivors of child sexual assault and offenders.

Description

Generation Five is a non-profit organization that brings together diverse community leaders working to end child sexual abuse within five generations. Our programs provide leadership training to community members, activists and professionals and foster community action, national strategy and movement building to impact child sexual abuse. We are not a direct service organization; rather, we work in collaboration with service providers to ensure that affordable, culturally relevant support is available to survivors, offenders, and affected families. Our Staff and Board of Directors are committed to maintaining core leadership based in community and reflective of the diverse race, class, culture, ethnicity, gender, and sexual identities of those affected by child sexual abuse. As a fundamental part of our structure, we work in alliance with local and national organizations to develop model child sexual abuse prevention and response strategies.
