A little girl is afraid to go to sleep at night, knowing if she’s not awake when her abuser comes into her room, she’ll be victimized…again.
A 10-year old boy is incarcerated for murder – forced to kill by a man who is no relation to him, but for whom the boy depends on for life’s basic needs.
A teenage girl is labelled “whore” by her own mother, barely known by her father, and beaten by an older sibling daily.
A teenage boy is targeted, cyberbullied, and sees no way out but suicide.
We’re experiencing a crisis.
Children are abused, used, and confused about who they are and the purpose for their life. They lose their voice, and they lose their power.
Our founder, Jackie Bailey was one of those abused children. She lost her self-worth, self-confidence, and the ability to empower her voice. When Jackie discovered the lessons in her experience, and the meaning of her message to others, she was able to fully heal.
Being an advocate for children, mentoring youth in lifelong skills of confidence and communication, and providing a piece of a larger societal safety net for youth without family, is all part of The Speak Feed Lead Project’s mission and curriculum.
THE CRISIS WON'T END WITHOUT ACTION
A message from Founder, Jackie Bailey:
To stop violence, hatred, drug use, disrespect for life, and incivility; we don’t need more regulation, but EDUCATION. Violence won’t be silenced until we implement EMPOWERMENT.
Children won’t stop HURTING themselves and others, until they see how much they can HELP themselves and others.
