Paris Hilton pushes for US youth care abuse reform

Paris Hilton spoke about her alleged abuse as a teenager on Wednesday as part of a push to change laws governing youth care facilities. Speaking at the US Capitol on Wednesday, Hilton detailed how she still struggles to sleep due to post traumatic stress disorder stemming from her time at boarding facilities as a teenager. "Every day in America, children in congregate care settings are being physically, emotionally and sexually abused. Children are even dying at the hands of those responsible for their care," she added - pointing to the 2020 death of Cornelius Fredericks, 16, in a facility in Michigan after he was restrained by staff. Hilton is part of a community of thousands who identify as survivors of abuse at similar facilities. "For too long, bad actors in the troubled teen industry have been allowed to prey on desperate parents and vulnerable children and make child abuse their business model," Mr Schiff said - thanking Hilton and others for sharing their stories.
