Press Conference – Child Abuse Prevention Month
April 2, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Commissioner Trevor Fuller, Councilman Michael Barnes, County Manager Dena Diorio, District Attorney Andrew Murray and Department of Social Services Director Peggy Eagan will be among those speaking April 2 at a press conference to launch Child Abuse Prevention Month.
The Mecklenburg County Child Abuse Prevention Collaborative invites you to join us at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center at 10 a.m. as we plant a pinwheel garden and raise awareness about this critical issue. Pinwheels for Prevention is a national campaign designed to celebrate healthy, happy childhoods. Pinwheels for Prevention represents our effort to focus on community activities that support families and public policies that prioritize prevention right from the start to make sure child abuse and neglect never occur.
Council for Children’s Rights is proud to be a member of the Mecklenburg Child Abuse Prevention Team – a collaboration of approximately 12 child-serving agencies committed to increasing awareness on how we all can make a difference in preventing child abuse and neglect.
