The vision of a world in which violent punishment of children is universally condemned and prohibited is now within our grasp... We must not keep children waiting.
Paulo Sérgio Pinheiro
We envision a country where children are loved, valued, respected -- and never hit.
We are committed to ending all hitting of children and youth in all places including schools and homes. By joining, you are indicating your support for this cause. You become a lifetime ambassador for the organization and the movement. You do not need to rejoin the organization each year, though we will gladly accept new donations! We will keep you informed through periodic (quarterly is our plan) newsletters.
The U.S. Alliance to End the Hitting of Children was founded in 2011 to bring together individuals and organizations who want to see an end to this antiquated and dangerous form of discipline. In the 2018, the organization joined forces with the Vincent J. Fontana Center for Child Protection of the New York Foundling and the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children. Collectively, we are working toward the goal of ending all hitting of children.
