About Darkness to Light

We believe that learning the facts about child sexual abuse helps prevent it.  Talking about it helps prevent it.  Getting involved helps prevent it.  The truth is, if child abuse can be prevented, it can be stopped.  That’s why D2L exists – to help individuals, organizations, and communities work together to end child sexual abuse.
