Stop the Silence and the world

Hello, all. This is, indeed, a very strange time for the world. We know that with the added stress of COVID-19 looming over us, Survivors (as well as all others) can feel an added sense of stress of being alone, coping alone, figure out alone. And children are at more risk due to the stress in families and the closure of schools and other normal activities. We at Stop the Silence® hope that we make lives that much easier by providing information, training, and support. Please take a little time to learn more about the risk of children during this time (see all the way at the bottom of this Report for additional resources).

While some of our normal onsite training and other activities have been curtailed due to the virus, we keep going! 

And, soon, we'll have some very, very exciting news on various fronts, one of them spelled out below about our upcoming, new online Masters, Diploma, and Certificate program. But there will be more to come in the way of a VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT at the end of the year about the partnership between Stop the Silence® and the Institute on Violence, Abuse and Trauma (IVAT) - so stay tuned! 

Primary Activities this Past Quarter

1. The Stop the Silence® Facebook Page and Closed Group for Survivors 

Given the closed nature of the world at this point and the need of Survivors, we - with the incredible leadership and help of Ward Schline, our Coordinator of Stop the Silence® Social Media Outreach - have been focusing largely on reaching out with information and support to Survivors and those related in other ways to CSA (as parents, advocates, etc.). We have largely done this through our open Facebook page from, where anyone can access information and support, and our closed Facebook group for survivors and their very close supporters (for the closed group, people have to ask permission to join and have to note why they want to join, i.e., because they are a survivor or very close supporter). There are thousands of people from throughout the world accessing information and support on both the page and the group and interacting with each other for support and guidance.

On a daily basis, we provide important information about various related subjects, like Gaslighting and other forms of ambient abuse, and also respond to survivors' questions and needs - on both the page and the group. Another very good "go-to" place for  information, of course, is the information provided by CDC on adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), which we utilze on a regular basis.

2. Expanding our online education 

Stop the Silence® is working with Craig Hansen (soon to be Dr. Craig Hansen), a New Zealander who lives in Indonesia, to develop a Masters, Post-Graduate Diploma, and Post-Graduate Certificate Level Programmes in Child Trauma and Protection, Level 7. We are currently seeking approval for our programs' credentials from the University of Applied Research and Development, for the overview/ outline. The University notes about itself that "Our reputation for research and international outlook is second to none and reflected in our performance in the latest QS World University Rankings where we are ranked first in the world for development studies."

We are so lucky to have Craig working with us, helping us to organize and get approval for the curriculum for the hopefully soon-to-be virtual education on childhood trauma. Craig brings a global perspective to all his work - as coach, leader, educator, speaker, and entrepreneur. He has held leadership positions in government, non-profit organizations, educational institutions, and has led innovative projects around the world, including those in India, Nepal, Indonesia, the US., and News Zealand. THANK YOU, CRAIG! 

Stay tuned for an announcement about the availability of different levels of achievement (Masters, Diploma, Certificate) that will be available through a new online platform for Stop the Silence. 

3. Applications, applications, applications

I imagine this is exactly... no one's favorite job (well, it's not mine :-)), but by or before the end of August we will have in an new multi-million application for funds to expand the Stop the Silence® model to Peru, Tajikistan, South Africa, and Indonesia in partnerships with our partners in those countries. Wish us luck!!

Keep safe, all. Keep well. Be kind. Help each other.

Additional Resources: The resources available online are vast and can be overwhelming. The National Sexual Violence Resource Center and the Resource Sharing Project are national leaders in providing support and resources to advocates and community-based responders. The leaders of the me too movement have published a toolkit for survivors with ideas for self-care. Perhaps the most important thing we can do during this time is to make special efforts to ensure we are reaching out and checking-in with survivors we know and work with, in addition to our colleagues who are trying to provide support and interventions for victims and survivors.

Thanks for reading!

This certainly has been a strange time for all, and for me in other ways, as well, besides the virus. With the Corona Virus changing peoples' lives all over the globe, it has been a difficult time for all of us - and can have the effect of additional sense of isolation for survivors, so I hope those of you who are survivors are taking care of yourselves.

Stop the Silence® has remained busy. This season continues the development of plans, partnerships, and fundraising. I am providing an update on those.

This Report is dedicated to my sister, Amy Pine, who died on March 22, just other day, and who is a good part of the reason that I got involved in work to prevent and stop child sexual abuse and help survivors heal worldwide, which is the Mission of Stop the Silence®. A short Obituary is at the bottom of the update that tells a bit of the tale of her and Stop the Silence®, and a longer, official one is attached. A picture of me and her and from a few years ago are at the top of this report. 

Here is an update on current key issues of our programming:

1. Unfortunately, while we made it through the third round of the MacArthur Foundation 100 & Change program - submitted through the Institute on Violence, Abuse and Trauma (IVAT), a 501(c)(3) organization lead by Sandi Capuano Morrison that condemns violence and oppression in all its forms - which provides $100 million to one organization every two years, was not the winner. Making to the third round is a great feat and testimony to our good work as many hundreds of organizations were competing.

We are moving forward with implementation of our international model that currently has 15 countries as a part of the coalition by applying for other major funds. If you had not seen our video that provides a quick overview of the partnership that was made for MacArthur (or, of course, if you want to see it again!), please click here to take a look at the video we made about the partnership and model (script by Pamela J Pine, video credit, Ben Kamakorewa). As I noted in the last report, there will be a closer association soon with IVAT and we will keep you posted about that.

2. An updated description of the New Zealand program, which informed the international program, is attached. We were to return to New Zealand in June 2020 (for which we have continued to plan fundraise this past period) to do a final training under this project for hundreds of various types of service providers. However, due to the virus, it has been postponed. We are now looking to probably the final quarter in 2020 to hold that training. We will aim to get everyone "on the same page" so that those who need help can get help by a multi-faceted group of service providers who understand the issues regarding CSA and other adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and who give information that reinforces each others' work and messages, and does not come at cross purposes from one another!

3. The U.S./New Zealand Program Team presented in Doha, Qatar in February 2020, at the prestigious and well-known International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (ISPCAN) international Congress where we were one of the few organizations to get a full hour to speak about the development, implementation, and outcomes of programming in New Zealand thus far! Besides the opportunity to present the work that we have been doing in New Zealand and elsewhere, it gave us a chance to network with so many others who are working internationally. Being in Doha also gave me the personal pleasure of returning to the Middle East, where I have spent so much time working in the past. Sadly, there are few places that I can go now given the world's situation. Pics are attached of our trip. We are now looking at providing another update Australia at the ISPCAN Congress there at the end of this year. 

A Tribute to My Sister, Amy Pine, and Her Work on CSA Advocacy and Treatment

Please see the longer Obituary attached. Here, I provide a short overview of Amy's work on child sexual abuse and her connection to the work of Stop the Silence®.

After receiving her degree and license to practice as a Marriage and Family Therapist in 1983, she opened her private practice in Santa Cruz that year. In 1987 Amy collaborated with Ellen Bass, who ultimately co-wrote The Courage to Heal (known to many as 'the Survivors' Bible') to found Survivors Healing Center (SHC), a local, Santa Cruz, CA non-profit dedicated to encourage, support, and advocate for adult survivors of child sexual abuse, the first of its kind in the country. Local survivors joined with Amy to publicly tell their stories. As a result of moving past shame, a core group of courageous women survivors of child sexual abuse joined Survivors Healing Center to make it a thriving resource for both survivors seeking services and local elected officials seeking guidance on public policy.

In 2000, I (Pamela Pine, CEO, Stop the Silence®) contacted Amy as I began learning about CSA - Amy and Ellen were the only two people I knew at that time who were actively and progressively working on CSA. We put together a collaboration between SHC and the international health organization in Washington, D.C. that I was working for at that time. Amy encouraged me to keep going to focus on a national/international model, even when I began to think getting people to pay attention was impossible and getting funding more so. Ultimately, in partnership, I wrote a grant and got unprecedented funding for a community advocacy, outreach, and treatment program that began as a focus in Santa Cruz. I continued to tailor and perfect that focus and model over the years - with all of the original components that Stop the Silence® continues to use today, and now with some added ones. I and Amy and SHC continued to collaborate on various programming over the years, including on the Walk to Stop the Silence® in South County Santa Cruz (patterned after the Race to Stop the Silence® in Washington, D.C.), which, in Santa Cruz, drew large numbers of largely Hispanic populations.

Amy continued to be active at the SHC until her retirement in January of this year.

Thank you for reading about my sister, Amy Pine, and her work. Please see the Obituary attached, which gives some more details on her life path. 

And, please: These next few months may be rough on survivors in particular. All: please take good care of yourselves and your loved ones. If you are a survivor of CSA or other adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), take extra good care.

Pamela J Pine, CEO, End-of-Season Report
Pamela J Pine, CEO, End-of-Season Report

Happy holidays to you all from all of us! 

I wanted to provide you with an end-of-year report and get us all started out well for the brand-new year: 2020, can you believe it!? 2020 - WOW!

For me, this past year has brought so much growth and re-orientation, professionally and personally, and I am grateful for it all. For myself, personally, I have been able to realize, more and more, how important some people in my life are to me. I have been able to accomplish some of the personal things that I've wanted to accomplish for so long. I've gotten back to my singing (more, not yet to the level I'd like to, but working on it), and my drawing and painting (same thing). The improvements on my house, which I've wanted to make for so long, have been coming right along. I am thinking of all of you and wishing you well.

Professionally, with Stop the Silence®, there's lots to tell, as always... 

Stop the Silence® Update

As always, Stop the Silence® has remained busy. This season is always about plans, moving forward partnerships, and fundraising, and this year-end has been no different. Here are five of our important involvements over the past few months:

1. In past reports, I've described some of the partnerships that are moving forward in a big way - the ones that support our programming in New Zealand and that are moving forward toward the further implementation of our international model that currently has 15 countries as a part of the coalition (some of the sites are providing in the map below - some addresses not exact). If you have not already, please click here to take a look at the video we made about the partnership and model (script by Pamela J Pine, video credit, Ben Kamakorewa). 

The video was made for an application to the MacArthur Foundation 100&Change Program that will give $100 million to one organization and promote others' good ideas that change the world. We are still in the running and will find out in February whether we have made it to the top 100 organizations! The award is given in September 2020. The international program was designed by me and submitted under the Institute on Violence, Abuse and Trauma (IVAT), a 501(c)(3) organization lead by Sandi Capuano Morrison, that condemns violence and oppression in all its forms. It stands with all who work for equality and peace. IVAT is a leading international resource and training center, founded in 1984, and has offices in San Diego, CA, and Honolulu, HI. (See, also, below, about our partnership with them.) We expect to be more involved with IVAT over this coming year - I'll keep you posted!

2. A description of the New Zealand program, which informed the international program, is attached. We return to New Zealand in June 2020 (for which we have been planning and doing some additional fundraising this past period) to do a final training under this project for hundreds of various types of service providers. We aim to get everyone on the same page so that those who need help can get help by a multi-faceted group of service providers who are "on the same page" and not giving information that comes at cross purposes from one another!

One of the additional and intended and wonderful outcomes of this program in New Zealand thus far has been to forward the community presence to "sit with the big boys and girls" at the national government table, to help identify needs and steer programming, and that has happened. Trust MYRIVR, our New Zealand and fundamental international partner, has not only been absolutely critical in the program's organization, outreach, education, and training progress, and helped to hook up individuals to services through their amazing MYRIVR App, but they have been invited to help inform the government's efforts to address New Zealand's very large child abuse issues! 

3. But, before June, the New Zealand program Team will be headed to Doha, Qatar in February 2020, to the prestigious and well-known International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (ISPCAN) international Congress where we have been invited to speak about the development and outcomes in New Zealand thus far! We all are greatly looking forward to that! Besides the opportunity to present the work that we have been doing in New Zealand and elsewhere, it will give us a chance to network with so many others who are working internationally. It will also give me the personal pleasure of returning to the Middle East, where I have spent so much time working in the past. Sadly, there are few places that I can go now given the world's situation. 

4. Two of Stop the Silence®'s fundamental partnerships are with IVAT and the National Partnership to End Interpersonal Violence Across the Lifespan (NPEIV), which is associated with IVAT. NPEIV is a nonpartisan group of individuals, organizations, agencies, agencies, coalitions, and groups that embrace a national, multi-disciplinary and multicultural commitment to the prevention of all forms of interpersonal violence. We believe it is a basic human right to be safe at home, safe at school, safe in the community, and safe when interacting with the institutions of our society. It is our mission to work towards eliminating all forms of interpersonal violence, for all people, in all communities, at all states of life. I sit on the Executive Board of NPEIV and on the Advisory Group of IVAT. Together, as noted above, we aim to change the world. We expect the partnership between Stop the Silence® and IVAT to grow even stronger this year. 

5. Other partnerships, too, help us do various things. Two other very important partnerships to mention are the ones that help us raise funds, like through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), and equally important, as well as, of course, are those individuals, like Ward Schline, who contributes SO much to the information that goes out through the Stop the Silence® Facebook pages (we have an open page and a closed group) as well as our LinkedIn group, and Alan Horn, who has steadfastly volunteered his time over years to help Stop the Silence®. We have another volunteer joining us who is working with us to develop an interactive blog so that survivors can safely interact with and get support from each other - and we are expanding our training. Stay tuned!

That's plenty for now. I hope you all have a very, very happy holiday. I know that this season can be rough on survivors. Take good care of yourselves and your loved ones. If you are a survivor of child sexual abuse or another type or other types of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), take extra good care this season.

Hello, everyone. I hope you are well. This Global Giving report will be rather brief as we have been busy as little bees gearing up for the upcoming 2020 year, in the U.S., New Zealand, and around the world! 

Please see our last Global Giving report, Stop the Silence® Over the Summer Months (August 2019), that provides a good amount of detail about the work with our New Zealand and international partner, Trust MYRIVR, in New Zealand. A few kudos, first:

  • Trust MYRIVR has carried on in very important ways as a result of the work that we've done together (e.g., Trust MYRIVR is now partnered with The Royal Commission of Inquiry into abuse in state care).
  • We also want to applaud the work of Ward Schline, our new Stop the Silence® Facebook Editor, who will be supporting survivors and others by providing information and commentary, and Joann Stevelos who steadfastly helps to forward the work of Stop the Silence®.
  • And the many others, like Alan Horn, who volunteer and otherwise partner with Stop the Silence®. (see the great pic of him doin’ his volunteer thing ).
Thank you SO much, all!!

Today, however, I want to primarily underscore the hard work that we are doing to forward the model developed under Stop the Silence® to work with many others around the world. Our focus for these last three months has been largely on proposal-writing and fundraising and partnership-building. Our aim is to work with others to build programs that are holistic, comprehensive, interactive, that build capability, and that are interconnected, dynamic, have a feedback loop, that reach and involve wide spectrums of the immediate community, are action-oriented, and that provide ways to widely collaborate toward worldwide implementation. 

The vision and framework for the Model we use reflects and promotes a social movement through a widening audience of professionals and community members; through evidence-based, hands-on- and electronically-based risk-assessments; through advocacy, training, outreach, and education to key stakeholders, service providers, and those at risk; and provides access to services through a free, phone-based, downloadable App, resulting in a critical mass of trained service providers, educated publics, and increased prevention, reporting, and services.

Our outreach to foundations and others these past few months - thank you so much for those who work to provide funds for organizations like ours - has included (these and others):

1. The MacArthur Foundation's 100&Change Program, which, as we noted in August, will be awarding one, $100 million grant in the fall of 2020.

We applied to MacArthur with a 15-country, worldwide program based on the model being used in New Zealand. We have had follow-up from MacArthur and we are (drum roll, please) thus far made it into the third round of reviews!! Wow! That is both a testimony to our good thinking and work but also an enormous honor. We will hear whether we've made it into the "top-100" organizations sometime this winter (in 2020) and the final pick will occur in the fall of 2020. Getting into the top 100 would give us enormous visibility with various funders and others, and we sure hope that occurs. We are very proud of what we have done thus far. Please see our video by clicking here.  

2. The Gates Foundation Grand Challenges initiative has awarded grants to 180 investigators in 30 countries, targeting 30 key challenges in global health and development to date.

Grand Challenges Explorations: Innovations for Improving the Impact of Health Campaigns seeks innovative solutions that accelerate the improvement of coverage, reach, efficiency, and effectiveness of campaign-based delivery of health interventions. Initial grants of USD $100,000 will be awarded. If awarded, If awarded, Stop the Silence® staff will be supporting the development of an information campaign to increase awareness and understanding of adverse childhood events (ACEs) overall

3. The Global Innovation Fund, which potentially provides millions of dollars to worthy projeccts, is a unique hybrid investment fund that supports the piloting, rigorous testing, and scaling of innovations targeted at improving the lives of the poorest people in developing countries. Through their investments, they support a portfolio of innovations that collectively open up opportunities and improve the lives of millions of people across the developing world. We are working to extend our model to other countries with their support

4. Additional funds from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), which, along with CAF America Foundation is currently funding our work in New Zealand. Our application to RWJF is for Pioneering funds, with a focus on implementing our model in Florida. 

5. A new round of our involvement in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) - starting this month. The mission of the CFC is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all.

CFC is the world's largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, with almost 200 CFC campaigns throughout the country and overseas raising millions of dollars each year. Pledges made by Federal civilian, postal and military donors during the campaign season support eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world. Stop the Silence® has been a member of CFC for over a decade and has received critical support for our ongoing programming as a result.    

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you so much for taking a look at our ongoing work and providing YOUR support. Your support and the support of others helps make all of what we do possible! Please give to help us all move forward in the prevention and treatment and mitigation of child sexual abuse!

Next Update scheduled for the Winter 2020. "See" you then!

Let's make 'em all this happy...
Let's make 'em all this happy...

Hello. I hope everyone is well - and that if it's hot, you're keeping cool, and if it's cold in the Southern hemisphere, you're keeping warm!

Stop the Silence®, in partnership with many others, aims to make differences in individuals' lives and in societies around the globe. One member of the training in New Zealand underscored that our training there helped him both disclose his abuse and move forward his healing and therefore the better health of his entire family. We are thrilled that our work makes these kinds of differences. 

And, we look to do this and more - change entire populations' understanding, increase prevention, increase reporting, increase healing and change systems across the globe!

So, this report is a bit more technical than many of the reports we write, because we want you to know not only what we're doing, but how we're doing it, and what we're accomplishing with your support!

---------------------------------------

The most important information that we have to share with you this past a-little-over-three-month period is to underscore the outcomes of our work in New Zealand that have helped move our expanding and global work forward, and, as we move forward globally, the focus of that expanding work.

1. In New Zealand, in collaboration with our international New Zealand-based partner, Trust MYRIVR, we accomplished the following top five primary service results by thus far over the project period:

  1. We delivered two free, highly successful trainings, the second during the last quarter, to 40 participants from 13-16 November 2018 and to another 48 people from April 16-18, 2019 and strategized on others. This led to a third, well- received and major training / event in early August with 100 people involving a field trip by CAF America.
  2. In the past quarters, we have reached nearaly 100,000 with information through outreach efforts, the App, social media (e.g., Facebook, LinkedIn, mass media, i.e., two International Radio Samoa stations).
  3. Stop the Silence® enhanced an online CSA training/professional development resource tool to be used as an introduction, refresher, and as a sustainability effort for staff/members of communities.
  4. We developed strong networks through which to move the programming forward in-country and elsewhere, e.g., Oceania, through:
  • Generation of a large (hundreds) waiting list for involvement the in NZ programming - with plans for a very large training/event later in 2019.
  • Dialogue with other organizations across NZ that wish to sponsor events to raise awareness about CSA, e.g., local government groups such as the Auckland Council and Auckland District Health Boards that focus primarily on the Auckland Communities’ 1.6 million population.
  • Discussion with interested international parties from Australia and Samoa, e.g., Samoan Victims’ Support Group (with intro from Author, Survivor, Speaker, Counselor John Saunders, who spoke at the April training). 

Furthermore, the award from RWJF/CAF America, under which we are currently working in New Zealand, was widely advertised, resulting in substantial exposure and positive recognition from providers, organizations, foundations, and the public, as well as additional funding. After first announcing the partnership in August 2018, the number of downloads of the App spiked initially. And, up to the present time (early August), and while still not active for long, the MYRIVR APP has already assisted connecting 7,500 unique users, 8,000 Service Providers, 30,000 nationwide (New Zealand) and 62.4 million community service touch points. We expect these numbers to grow exponentially over the short- and longer-term.

For the Stop the Silence® / TMR partnership, this translated into wide and ongoing exposure in New Zealand, other parts of Oceania, and elsewhere. For examples:

  • Invitation and delivery of CSA presentations to Honolulu Police Department’s Sex Crimes Unit, St. John The Baptist Catholic Church, and on international Radio Samoa stations 531pi (from NZ) and KNDI (from HI) in 2018 and 2019 respectively – desire to further collaborate.
  • NZ Catholic Church of Auckland dialogue to deliver awareness training to their churches across Auckland.
  • Radio Samoa providing weekly Tuesday spot for MYRIVR to talk about CSA during their breakfast show.
  • Further interest from various countries (more than a dozen at this count) interested in bringing similar programming to their countries.

2. As a result of 20 years of the work of Stop the Silence®, and our successes in the U.S., Cyprus, New Zealand, the UK, and elsewhere, we are focusing on planning events that propel the development of programming forward in a similar way as thus far conducted. 

We are in the process of reaching out to foundations for major funding around the world to support this work that has shown definitive results.

We begin informing potential funders of our intentions with this: Child sexual abuse (CSA) occurs at staggering numbers throughout the globe and constitutes a broad range of behaviors occurring along a continuum. Behaviors include voyeurism, molestation, child pornography, rape, torture, and sexual exploitation, and often go unreported. A wide range of highly deleterious consequences (emotional, psychological, physical, societal, financial) often affect the child who is abused and often continue into adulthood, affecting those around them, as well.

We note to these potential funders, and most recently, to the MacArthur Foundation's 100&Change Program, which will be awarding one, $100 million grant in the fall of 2020, that we will implement a Stop the Silence-designed (Pamela Pine, PhD, MPH - yours truly), Institute on Violence, Abuse and Trauma (IVAT, based in San Diego, CA) and Stop the Silence-led, three-phase, five-year program, “Speak-Up – Stop the Silence®” in 13 locations around the world (Australia, Guam/Micronesia, Indonesia, Iraq, Israel, New Zealand, Pakistan, Peru, Samoa, South Africa, Taiwan, Tajikistan, the UK). Please watch our video by clicking here

The work will be done in partnership with wonderful and prestigious leaders and colleagues throughout the world and will be predicated on 20 years of Stop the Silence®'s tested work in several geographies. We are also applying for indiviedual grants, which include those for work in the U.S., in St. Petersberg, FL, in partnership with the University of South Florida, and CASAs there. 

The vision and framework for the Model we use reflects and promotes a social movement through a widening audience of professionals and community members; through evidence-based, hands-on- and electronically-based risk-assessments; through advocacy, training, outreach, and education to key stakeholders, service providers, and those at risk; and provides access to services through a free, phone-based, downloadable App, resulting in a critical mass of trained service providers, educated publics, and increased prevention, reporting, and services.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you so much for taking a look at our ongoing work and providing support. Your support helps make this all possible! Please give to help us all move forward in the prevention and treatment and mitigation of child sexual abuse!

Next Update scheduled for the end of the third quarter, 2019. "See" you in the fall!
