Prevent Child Abuse American takes official positions on issues vital to the well-being of our nation’s children and families.
These position statements and resolutions formalize PCAA’s viewpoint on public policies and issues that pertain to the prevention of child abuse and neglect. They provide a framework for their staff as it performs such activities as responding to legislation, the media, and judicial proceedings, as well as participating in public activities or events.
They have six position statements which speak to issues core to our mission. Five of these statements were updated and approved by the Prevent Child Abuse America Board of Directors in 2010, and the statement on Bullying/Peer Abuse was approved in May, 2014.
