April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, a time to come together to raise awareness and participate in activities that show our commitment to children and families. Children are the foundation of our society, our community, and our future. Raised in loving and supportive environments, children are more likely to prosper academically and financially, becoming successful contributing members of society. Our efforts to raise awareness and engagement to impact positive change this year are as vital as ever.

National Child Abuse Prevention Month recognizes the importance of communities working together to help families thrive and prevent child maltreatment. Communities across Wisconsin and the nation are wearing blue as a sign of our joint commitment to prioritizing children and families, strengthening families, and building community resilience.

Use the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board Social Media Toolkit to align your local campaign with the national initiative and plant the seeds of a better tomorrow for children and families in your community. Whether it is a social media post on your Facebook, a button on your website, or an email, every action counts to ensure happy and healthy childhoods for all children everywhere. This year's supplement and Five for Families Prevention Month social media posts provide additional materials that can be shared throughout April.
