Put Kids First

Put Kids First

Put Kids First is a non-profit organization whose goal is to keep kids safe through community involvement, education and legislation.

It is a group that was started by Chris Danielson after the disappearance of a 10-year-old girl from Chris' neighborhood on October 1, 2000. A month later the little girl was found murdered.

Since its beginning, Put Kids First members and volunteers have petitioned for a sex offender registry (in Canada), have attended and organized community events to bring awareness to the issues regarding children's safety, making appearances at offenders' court dates, speaking out and fighting for changes to the law.

Recently Canada's Conservative Government has started motions to change the age of sexual consent from the current 14 years up to 16 years old http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_consent_in_North_America. Put Kids First supports this action.
