April is Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month, an annual opportunity to celebrate positive childhood experiences and highlight the importance of safe, stable, nurturing environments that help children thrive. Throughout CAP Month, Prevent Child Abuse America and our state chapter, Prevent Child Abuse West Virginia, are using the metaphor of building blocks and construction to reinforce the concept that prevention cannot and does not happen alone. Instead, communities must build positive futures together in partnership.
We invite you to follow us on Facebook at facebook.com/pcawv to stay involved throughout the month of April. Please join us wherever you may be for Wear Blue Days—Friday, March 31, 2023, Monday, April 3, 2023, and Friday, April 7, 2023—to kick off Child Abuse Prevention Month. If possible, post a picture on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtags #WearBlueDay2023, #CAPMonth, and #BuildingTogether so we can share them with others.
