INTERNATIONAL LAWS

FOR CHILD PROTECTION

The Global Statute of Limitations Reform Task Force (“Global SOL Task Force”) brings together two powerful forces–the Brave Movement and CHILD GLOBAL–to eliminate statutes of limitations (SOLs) for child sex abuse (CSA) worldwide. CHILD GLOBAL is the leading think tank in the world to document, research, and analyze SOL reform for CSA victims, with a proven track record in the United States, Scotland, and Chile — where the movement was led by Task Force member Vinka Jackson and Derecho al Tiempo.  CHILD GLOBAL supplies the intellectual assets to open the door for victims’ access to justice.  Its role in the Task Force is to provide its expertise and the creation of a global dashboard to inform the public about SOL reform around the globe.

The Brave Movement is leading the grassroots advocacy goals of the Global SOL Task Force.  It brings together diverse survivor-leaders,survivor networks, and allies from around the world who have proven track records and peer standing for their advocacy. Focused on transformational change, its members are bound by a common purpose: to create a world where children and adolescents can grow up safely and in safety. They will form the vital core of a powerful and transformational voice for systemic, socio-political and socio-cultural change.

The Task Force is run in partnership by CHILD GLOBAL and The Brave Movement.
