DCAC

Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center is shining a light on the over 28,000 reported cases of abuse in Dallas County each year, and asking for the community's help in our work.

The challenge is, the victims are under 18 and their identity and stories are concealed to protect them. 

Turning this challenge into inspiration, DCAC has created a campaign called  Save Jane,”  that shows that child abuse in Dallas County spans every race, age and neighborhood in a provocative and creative way. 

Each child is shown with a black bar across their eyes with the statement,  “I am Jane Doe.” They are no longer nameless kids, but instead become the kid in your daughter's class, the boy on your sons soccer team or the girl walking by you at the mall.
