The Protect Every Child Initiative to Combat Child Sexual Abuse

Survivora Network of those Abused by Priests

April 19, 2019

For the past two years, Sam Young has led a one-man charge to reform the LDS church and to protect children within the Mormon faith. Now, Sam is taking his campaign nationwide and is urging everyone to take one of three simple actions that can protect EVERY child.

Here is what Sam is asking everyone to do:

Action 1: Petition
Last year’s petition was directed at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This year’s petition will call for all parents as well as all religions, denominations and youth serving organizations to Protect Every Child. The goal is to gather 50,000 signatures.

Action 2: Climb a Mountain, Save a Child
Summit a mountain, a hill, a driveway or any point of prominence. Whether big or small.
Unfurl a banner on that driveway or mountain top. Take a picture. Then share it everywhere.
This year, hundreds of banners will be planted on pinnacles all around the world. The flags are not to be left behind. Rather, they are to be brought home for a subsequent action.
A lovely carol is sung during the Christmas season–Go Tell It On A Mountain. If ever there was a message to shout from the mountain tops, this is it. PROTECT EVERY CHILD.

Action 3: 12 Days of Ascension–July 24 to August 4, 2019
Last summer, a 23 day hunger strike was conducted in the shadow of the Salt Lake Temple. This summer, we’ll return to Utah for 12 days, Not to fast…to climb. Peaks will be summitted around the valley. Others will climb mountains across the country. Banners will be unfurled for the entire world to see.
