April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month — a time to recognize that we all play a part in building strong families and communities that promote the healthy development of our children.
Today, Friday, April 7, is Go Blue Day. Wear blue to show your support and raise awareness for the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Then plan to attend one of several Go Blue rallies across the state hosted by Alaska Children’s Trust.
