All Day

Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month

It is the responsibility of adults to provide the safe, stable, and nurturing relationships and environments that help children thrive. We encourage everyone to support families and keep children safe. There are several things you can do to raise awareness and impact positive change during Child Abuse Prevention Month. The Child Advocacy Center of Sedgwick County is asking everyone to wear BLUE every Friday in April to help us raise awareness about child abuse prevention.  So wear blue, take a selfie and post it to our Facebook page @CACofSedgwickCounty and/or Instagram @cac_SedgwickCounty with the hashtag #WearBlue2022! and/or #GoBlueICT.    Help us reach as many people as possible with child abuse prevention information by following us on social media and sharing our posts!
