“David is a champion of courage for other survivors. A respected and successful businessman, David made the choice to come forward and tell his story publicly so that others might find the courage to share their stories as well. I am proud to know and support David’s work.”

I began working with David Moody in 2012 when he agreed to share his story for a new version of Stewards of Children, Darkness to Light’s award-winning educational program for adults on how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. Through this program, David’s story has been heard by hundreds of thousands of adults who are learning the important skills needed to protect children. His courage is helping others break their silence. As a tireless advocate for all survivors and the importance of prevention, he is truly changing the way we think about and respond to the problem of child sexual abuse. He has been a true gift to all of us at Darkness to Light.
