2020 Child Abuse Prevention Month takes on heightened meaning in the midst of our current uncertainty. In previous times of stress and crisis, we have seen rates of child abuse rise. That's why during this Child Abuse Prevention Month, we are encouraging our partners to continue to message about what it takes to keep families strong and children safe amid these physically isolated times.
We have created a secondary Child Abuse Prevention Month messaging toolkit for the coronavirus that focuses on actions to ease social isolation and help families meet basic needs.
We encourage organizations who are able to plant their pinwheel gardens – maintaining a safe distance from each other. These gardens are important reminders that we want all children to have happy childhoods, even during the scary times.
Wear Blue Day is Friday, April 3. Please participate socially and tag Children’s Trust #InThisTogether.
