Getting ready for Child Abuse Prevention Month

February 24, 2017

Join Colorado Child Abuse and Neglect Campaign Partners on April 4 at the Colorado State Capitol to kick-off National Child Abuse Prevention Month in Colorado. Bring your children, help plant a pinwheel garden at the Capitol and hear from inspirational speakers who embody the belief that we all play a role in the prevention of child abuse and neglect. In essence, the pinwheel has come to serve as a physical embodiment, or reminder of the healthy starts we want for all children and has become one of the national symbols for child abuse prevention. Communities across the nation and Colorado are planting pinwheel gardens and wearing blue as a sign of our collective commitment to prioritizing children and families. This event will help kick-off a month of community events and prevention activities throughout Colorado! More details about this event will be shared on the CO4kids community blog next month, but don't wait to order materials for local events! 

Posters, flyers, brochures, magnets and more are available to pre-order to make sure communities have everything you need to make a difference for Colorado kids.

Visit the Colorado Child Abuse and Neglect Public Awareness Campaign Awareness Toolkit to view, download and order materials by COB next Wednesday, March 1st to make sure you have everything you need for April Child Abuse Prevention Month. 

Campaign partners can also co-brand materials, contact us to learn more.
