CALIFORNIA CHILD VICTIMS ACT
Starting January 1, 2020, the California Child Victims Act (AB 218) opens a three-year window for California child sexual assault survivors of any age to file claims against their perpetrators and the institutions responsible, no matter when the abuse occurred. If you were sexually assaulted as a child in California, it’s time to take legal action, begin healing and help make California safer for children today. We want to help.
