April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

The national Blue Ribbon campaign began in the spring of 1989 as one woman, Bonnie Finney of Norfolk, VA, tied a ribbon to her car antenna to take a stand against child abuse after experiencing the death of her grandson. National Child Abuse Prevention Month is a time to acknowledge the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse and neglect, and to promote the social and emotional well-being of children and families. During the month of April and throughout the year, communities are encouraged to share child abuse and neglect prevention awareness strategies and activities and promote prevention across the country.

All 10 Bay Area Counties have events and awareness campaigns for the month of April.

    Enough Abuse Greater Bay Area Campaign

The focus of the Enough Abuse Campaign is to build a true community movement against child sexual abuse. Educating adults to recognize, prevent, and intervene in abusive situations is the only way that child sexual abuse will end.

The Campaign is a collaborative effort between the Greater Bay Area Child Abuse Prevention Council Coalition (Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Monterey, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma counties), Partners in Prevention, and the Center for Innovation and Resources, Inc. We are holding trainings throughout the region to educate community members on how to identify and prevent child sexual abuse.

The Campaign launched with startup funding from the Columbia Foundation with additional support from Partners in Prevention, and in-kind support from the Coalition. We are off to a strong start! We have purchased the rights to use the Enough Abuse curricula (developed by the Massachusetts Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Partnership, with funding from the Centers for Disease Control), launched our public awareness campaign, and conducted our first Training of Trainers.
