Child Abuse Prevention Month

-

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month - throughout the month, we raise awareness, increase communities’ capacity to strengthen families, educate children on their right to be safe, and expand policy makers’ understanding of child abuse prevention. How will you commit to prevent child abuse and neglect?  Contact Laura Chowning, lchowning@pcaky.org for more information about Child Abuse Prevention Month.

*As a reminder, Prevent Child Abuse America, who holds the trademark registration for the blue and silver pinwheel asks that we don’t associate pinwheels with victims/substantiations. Pinwheels may be equated with general statement of support for great childhoods and healthy development. Associate them with live births in your county, number of children/families you serve, or another positive imagery. The Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign does not want to reinforce negative images that may be counter-productive to the symbol's image of hope, health and happiness. Pinwheels for Prevention is a registered U.S. trademark held by Prevent Child Abuse America (Reg. No. 2,800,287).
