OUR STORY

 

CHELSEA’S LIGHT SHINES ON

In the Spring of 2010, Chelsea King, teenage daughter of Protect the Joy founder Brent King, was sexually assaulted and murdered on a sunny San Diego afternoon while running in a public park. She was a senior in high school with a stack of college applications waiting on her desk. 

This was not the predator’s first sexual attack on a child. The despair that gripped the King family and community was galvanized into action. 

Applying evidence-based research, Chelsea’s Law was created. California passed it unanimously, followed by other states, and it’s now the model, nationwide, for protecting kids from sexual predators. 

The combined power of voice, vision, and legislation proven, the King family realized that their mission to protect children had only begun. And so, Protect the Joy was born.

TODAY, MORE THAN 17 MILLION KIDS ARE SAFER BECAUSE A SINGLE COMMUNITY UNITED IN GRIEF, TOOK ACTION. WE’RE NOT STOPPING THERE. MILLIONS MORE OF OUR KIDS NEED YOUR VOICE AND ACTION.
