If you're a Harford County resident, perhaps you've seen us out at Ripken Stadium or maybe you spun our big wheel at the Maryland BBQ Bash and won a "U Have the Power” T-shirt. Or perhaps you were out at the races somewhere across this great land, rooting on your favorite RAACE Hero. You might even live in another country and read one of our child safety articles on Facebook. No matter what inspired you to visit RAACE.org today, we're so glad you're here.

Whether you're a new parent searching for the best ways to protect your infant, a little league coach seeking child safety information, a local business owner looking to support a community cause, or even famous race car driver willing to share your fame, we all have one thing in common...we all care about children. And here at the Race Against Abuse of Children Everywhere, we have something for everyone who cares about kids. From simply staying informed about RAACE via social media to going all-in as a public ambassador, there’s a way for you to be involved that suits your interests, desires and resources.

Take a look around and let us know how you'd like to Join the RAACE!

RAACE stands for The Race Against Abuse of Children Everywhereand is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating child sexual abuse before it happens. Our mission is to raise public awareness and provide tools to help families protect children – at home, in their community, and all over the world! Child sexual abuse is a silent epidemic that remains taboo and therefore thrives in the shadows of society. RAACE is dedicated to changing that, because we believe that preventing abuse starts with awareness.
