Child Abuse Prevention Month 2021

Each April as part of Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month, Prevent Child Abuse New York (PCANY) mobilizes Pinwheels for Prevention public awareness campaigns. These campaigns promote simple actions that can make a big difference in the lives of children, strengthen families and prevent child abuse by removing and challenging barriers to healthy parenting.

Beginning last year, we broadened our efforts to include the #GoBlue4NYKids social media campaign. We are hoping you will join us in #GoBlue4NYKids activities throughout the month of April, including national Go Blue Day on April 1st, where we encourage people to wear blue, take pics and post them to their social media accounts (and ours!) with the hash tag #GoBlue4NYKids. Although Go Blue Day is just one day, #GoBlue4NYKids efforts are encouraged throughout the month to accommodate your planning needs and maximize reach.


Our 2021 Campaign theme was #Support.Nurture.Thrive. Here are some pics from some of this year's activities. If you still have pictures to share, please send them to Wendi Brandow.
