Event suggestions

These suggestions have been created to guide your planning for Child Abuse Prevention Month, but organizations are not limited to this list. We encourage creativity and community partnerships that will help to build awareness and amplify your impact.

  • Sponsor an awareness walk that encourages the whole community to “walk for prevention.”
  • A stroller parade where families can decorate their wagons and stroller and walk around the block.
  • Plant a community garden to show how you are planting the seeds for children to grow up happy, healthy and safe.
  • Host a family movie night in your parking lot or public park.
