This pledge closed about 1 year ago
Each year over 1500 children are killed in the United States by those who should care for them as are many more across the world. This year marks the 8th year that IN SUPPORT OF CHILDREN will hold a Vigil to recognize and remember Nixzmary Brown who was killed in 2006 (SEE: http://topics.nytimes.com/topics/reference/timestopics/people/b/nixzmary_brown/index.html) and all other children who die as a result of abuse. The Vigil is a time to renew our pledge to work to end physical punishment of children, something which often leads to their deaths. This year's Vigil will take place on Wednesday, February 13, 2013.
We ask all IN SUPPORT OF CHILDREN supporters to take a moment to pledge to work to end physical punishment of children and to encourage others to do the same. See video of ISOC's 2012 Vigil on our CAUSE page below!
