Strategies 2.0 trains, supports, and builds relationships so that we can lift up best practices, link people and organizations regionally and statewide, and leverage our collective power to prevent child abuse. This month we also join the movement to promote Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month to raise awareness that child abuse is preventable.
#WearBlue4Kids We hope you will join us and the Office of Child Abuse Prevention (OCAP) to encourage everyone in your communities to Volunteer, Speak Up, Reach Out. Check out their CAP Month toolkit and resources.
You can also spread the word by sharing that this Friday April 5 is #WearBlue4Kids day. We want to see pictures of everyone strutting their stuff in blue, so invite your whole community to take part—police, firefighters, doctors, teachers, families, elected officials, and especially you and your staff.
Join the Office of Child Abuse Prevention (OCAP), in partnership with The Child Abuse Prevention Center, at the second annualKids’ Day at the Capitol event on Thursday, April 11, 2019, 10 AM-2 PM at the California State Capitol.
