Stop Abuse, powered by Spectrum Puppets is a tax-exempt organization formed in 1986 to prevent child sexual abuse through education, detection and referral. Through its Emmy award-winning marionette production, "Simon Says, 'Just Tell'", schoolchildren learn to recognize, prevent and disclose abuse in a non-threatening environment. Thousands of cases of abuse have been prevented and hundreds abusers have been successfully prosecuted and imprisoned as a result of this program. We are also a full-service arts and entertainment company and produce Fundango Festival, the #1 Family Festival in Virginia Beach, entertainment for The Grand Illumination at the Founders Inn, children's crafts workshops, birthday parties and many other family-focused arts and entertainment events.
Our Mission is to prevent child sexual abuse through education, detection and referral. Our Vision is a world of safe, empowered children filled with self-worth and a deep awareness of the sanctity of their own bodies.
