dc.description The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation in Kansas City agreed to support the systematic identification of best practices on helping children heal from the impact of child abuse, and spread those effective interventions. This effort was conducted under the broad overview of the National Call To Action: A Movement to End Child Abuse and Neglect (NCTA). The National Call is an unprecedented collaboration of major national organizations concerned with child abuse including Prevent Child Abuse America, the National Children s Alliance, the National Association of Children s Hospitals and Related Institutions, the American Medical Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, Parents Anonymous, Child Welfare League of America, Children s Hospital-San Diego and others (see This coalition is committed, in the decades ahead, to the long-term elimination of child abuse. The Board of Directors of the National Call To Action quickly realized that professional organizations were important but not enough to achieve the mission. The Board concluded what was needed was a national movement of those more personally affected by abuse: the survivors of abuse and those parents whose children were touched by abuse. This component of the National Call emerged in a shared leadership role as the Authentic Voices and is serving as the epicenter of a nascent social movement that some day will involve millions of Authentic Voices in a coordinated effort to end child abuse through collective action, and social and political advocacy.
