PLEDGE TO WEAR BLUE this Wednesday, April 20th to show your commitment to keep kids safe and to show there is NO EXCUSE for child abuse!
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month; in support, the Children's Safety Center invites you to WEAR BLUE on Wednesday, April 20th. On this day, businesses, individuals and organizations across Arkansas will come together to make a visible commitment to preventing child abuse and supporting strong families and healthy children.
One person can make a difference, and it can start with you! On April 20th, WEAR BLUE anywhere – to work, to school, a community event, the gym, and even at home. Invite your friends, family, students, co-workers or even your entire office to WEAR BLUE too! It doesn’t matter if its a blue shirt or blue suede shoes, the unified, community-wide act of wearing blue will help raise awareness that child abuse is preventable.
HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
Wear Blue on April 20th!
Share your commitment with family, friends and co-workers and encourage them to WEAR BLUE too!
Take a picture of yourself, your group, class, or company wearing blue and share it on the Children's Safety Center's Facebook page
(and your page as well), share it on Twitter and Instagram too (@CSCNWA) Use #weARblue
In the spring of 1989, a grandmother from Virginia began the blue ribbon campaign as a tribute to her grandson, a three-year old who died at the hands of his mother’s abusive boyfriend. Since that time, concerned citizens all over the country have worn blue as a symbol of the need to prevent child abuse and neglect.
