Face It!
 
Peace Education is a partner in the Face It! campaign.  The Face It® Movement is
a 10 year initiative with the vision that all children in Jefferson County will
be free from abuse and neglect by 2023. Led by Kosair Charities, the Face It®
Movement began in 2012 in response to the public outcry against the increasing
number of child abuse deaths in the Commonwealth. It was launched in April 2013

promoting effective policies to improve the child welfare system.
