KARA (Kids At Risk Action) tracks current news about at risk children bringing transparency and  attention to our youngest and most vulnerable  citizens.  The COVID pandemic has virtually stopped major media reporting of child abuse issues.

KARA’s reporting is only sampling of what should be reported –  the great majority of child trauma & abuse is never known.

American states are struggling to find answers for ending adverse childhood experiences and saving at risk children by reversing the explosive growth of child abuse and neglect. 

  

37% of children overall and 44% of Black children are reported to child protection services in America by the time they turn 18.  (American Journal of Public Health 1.17)

 

6 to 12 million children a year are reported to child protection services and in many states, 1/3 of foster children are required to take psychotropic medicines

 

ALL ADULTS ARE THE PROTECTORS OF ALL CHILDREN
