“Unfurling banners at Rattlesnake Arches. It was gorgeous even in 105 degree beating sunshine.
Kudos to Julia Nielsen-Wallace for arranging and hosting our climb. Thanks to all 8 of the intrepid child protection advocates who trekked with us.
This weekend, a plethora of banners were unfurled on many mountains across the country. Thank you. Please continue climbing and saving children. On July 24, we commence our series of 10 hikes in Utah. The schedule will be posted soon.
Don’t forget to schedule October 5, 2019 on your calendar. Be one of 5,000 advocates who shout the message to the world that NOW is the time to stop child sex abuse.”

The Rattlesnake of Protect Every Child Arches and Warns the World:
Don’t Tread On The Rights of Children!
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Sign the new Petition:
Climb a mountain, hilltop or driveway. Unfurl a banner and share it.
Come to the March for the Children on October 5, 2019 in Salt Lake City.
This is the big one. If we have 5,000 marchers, the national media will be all over it.
Institutions will be warned. Huge awareness will be raised.
Children will be protected. Past victims will take solace.
