About Protect LDS Children

The Protect-The-Children initiative was organized by me, Sam Young.  In the summer of 2017, I found out that my daughter was regularly subjected to sexually explicit questions from age 12 to 17.  This happened behind closed doors, all alone with the bishop of my congregation.  I wish I could go back in time and protect my innocent 12 year old child.  Of course I can’t.  What I can do is to stand up and speak out for the protection of today’s children.
