Highlights & News

National Child Abuse Prevention Month
In 1983, the Blue Ribbon Campaign to Prevent Child Abuse started as a Virginia grandmother’s tribute to her grandson who died as a result of abuse. She tied a blue ribbon to the antenna of her car as a way to remember him and to alert her community to the tragedy of child abuse. During this time period, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed April as national child abuse prevention month. Since this time, Kempe has used the Blue Ribbon Campaign to bring awareness to the tragedy of child abuse and neglect and give community members, families and caretakers positive parenting advice.
