Child Abuse Prevention Month Awareness Tools

By its very nature, the pinwheel connotes whimsy and childlike notions - it has come to serve as a reminder of the safe, stable, and nurturing childhoods we want for all children. It is the national symbol for child abuse prevention. 

The pinwheel is an uplifting reminder of childhood and the bright futures all children deserve.

lluminate Colorado, the Colorado Chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America leads the Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign for Colorado. The campaign began in Colorado in 2009 and has progressively expanded across the state. Co4kids is proud to partner with Illuminate Colorado to help prevent child abuse in Colorado.
