Wear Blue for Child Abuse Prevention Month

April 1st marks the beginning of National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and we’re wearing blue on Friday, April 5th, to show support for the essential work needed to ensure safer, healthier futures for all children.

At least 1 in 7 children have experienced child abuse or neglect in the past year in the United States. Raising awareness in our community is the first step to bringing that number. When we participate in Wear Blue Day, we can utilize the opportunity to share with others why we’re wearing blue and prevention efforts to aid child abuse.

Wear Blue Day originated with a grandmother who lost her grandson to child abuse and neglect. In remembrance of her late grandson, she tied a blue ribbon to the antenna of her car. That one small ribbon started a movement where today millions of people wear blue to spread awareness about child abuse prevention.

On April 5th, we encourage you to join us in wearing blue this Friday and show your support for National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Allow your one small act to be part of the ripple effect of awareness, advocating for safer communities and households for children everywhere.
