Save Jane Event July 12

Written by: Northern Plains Children’s Advocacy Center

MINOT, ND—Every victim of abuse deserves a voice. Especially children. Join the Northern Plains Children’s Advocacy Center on July 12 as awareness is brought to those children in the northwestern region of North Dakota who were served by the Northern Plains Children’s Advocacy Center in 2023. The event starts at 6 p.m. in the Oak Park Amphitheater.


Staff, board members and the public will read the names of the 636 child victims who were served at the advocacy center last year. By doing this, we will give each one a voice by saying their names and crimes committed against them. To protect their identities, we say “Jane Doe” and “John Doe” in place of their names. We will not stop until each child’s name is spoken.
Sadly, those 636 victims are only a small fraction of the number of children who suffer from abuse. We are a community coming together to give a voice for those who can’t speak for themselves. If you’d like to join the fight and read names, please contact the NPCAC at 852-0836.


The NPCAC provides a compassionate and effective way to serve children victimized by sexual abuse and other crimes while restoring hope and helping them focus on what really matters—being a kid. Families that come to NPCAC are never charged for services; funding for NPCAC comes from grants and community donations.


“These children didn’t choose to be abused. We are here to give them a voice.” said Christal Halseth, NPCAC Executive Director. “Every year, we serve more children than the last. If we don’t fight for them, then who will?”
