Is it possible to end child sexual abuse in South Dakota? The Center for the Prevention of Childhood Maltreatment has a plan. Leaders of the organization are under no illusions about the complexity of the problem. But they also know the power of education, infrastructure, and response services. We welcome Director Carrie Sanderson.
