The Foundation will stand up and speak out for those in the greatest need of a voice. In Beau Biden’s words:

“We have seen the progress that can be made when society commits to shining a bright light on a crime like domestic violence, and we are seeing the beginning of what can be accomplished if we continue shining that bright light on child abuse,” he wrote. “As adults, we have a legal and moral obligation to stand up and speak out for children who are being abused – they cannot speak for themselves.”

Donations are being accepted at www.beaubidenfoundation.org and more information is available there.
