[ARCHIVED] Wear blue in support of Child Abuse Prevention Month

Pinwheels 2

March 29, 2022 – In support of National Child Abuse Prevention Month, Hampton’s Healthy Families staff invites city employees to join them in wearing blue Friday, April 1, and to join them at noon in Mill Point Park, where pinwheels will be planted in observance. 

The Pinwheels for Prevention campaign is a grassroots effort for individuals and organizations across the U.S. to take action. The campaign promotes healthy child development while raising awareness about preventing child abuse and neglect—before it ever happens. Prevent Child Abuse America highlights the blue pinwheel as the nationally recognized symbol for prevention because it represents the great childhoods all children deserve and the prevention efforts that help them happen. Today, it inspires all of us to play a role in providing the best possible environment for every child to flourish and thrive.
