Annual Envision Conference

Envision 2024 takes place June 25-26, 2024 in Washington, D.C. It’s an international conference featuring the latest research, practice, and experience in the prevention of child sexual abuse. 

Envision will be hosted by the Moore Center for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, with the support of our fantastic collaborators: Darkness to Light, The Mama Bear Effect, Pathways for Change, #WeRideTogether, ATSA, Patrice’s Kids, Center for Intergative Psychological Services, Prevent Child Abuse Vermont, Valor, Kimberly King, Children's Trust, Diane Tarantini, Buddy Speaks, Julie Federico, Risa Shaw, Kenneth Rogers, Kristen Jenson/Defend Young Minds, Kennedy Krieger Institute, Christopher Thomas, and Equimundo.  

The conference will bring together expert speakers and participants from a wide diversity of backgrounds, including advocates, child protection experts, communication specialists, funders, policy makers, researchers, students, survivors, treatment providers, and more. 

This year’s theme, The Future of Prevention, focuses on the practical ways we can join together to strengthen our resolve, increase our collaboration, and galvanize our efforts to stop child sexual abuse, once and for all. We’ll celebrate the monumental prevention milestones we’ve achieved over the past decade and highlight the next steps and hard work ahead to shape the future of child sexual abuse prevention across the globe.
