Every Child Deserves A Childhood
How Do We Blue

Through the borderless community of social media our Blue Ribbon campaign #HowWeDoBlue reached many new partners in the past month. Coast to coast: New Jersey, New York, Georgia to Kentucky, Nevada, and California. Even internationally: Canada, The Bahamas and Mexico! The Blue Ribbon pins and lanyards are being worn in so many diverse ways by parliament members, teachers, girl scouts, soccer teams, artists,   university/graduate students (as seen above), researchers, clergy and the list goes on.

Recent national headlines remind us that abuse of children can happen anywhere and too often in places we had thought safe and with people we trusted. The findings from the trial of former House Speaker Dennis Hastert and the revelations of sexual abuse by boarding school educators beg the question:

We begin by sharing the knowledge we have with our friends, family and co-workers. We continue by informing community leaders and policymakers that caring about keeping our children safe from abuse is top priority. 

We can all make a difference and must do so. To share a quote with you from the film Spotlight spoken by the victims' attorney Mitch Garabedian: "If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a village to abuse one". Each and every person has an important role to play in children's safety. One person – you! You CAN make a difference. 

Our partners share a mission to continue
– the awareness of the existence of child abuse
– knowledge of its devastating effects on a child
– knowledge of the fact that abuse knows no social or economic boundary
– advocacy of every child to have the right to a safe childhood

Your awareness work is important in getting people to stop and think about child abuse and neglect, even if just for a few minutes. If we keep the spotlight on child abuse, we can take the awareness to action.
We would love to hear from you, so we can see how we can support your awareness and advocacy work with the materials we have developed. 

Thank you for being a partner in the dream that every child deserves a childhood!

Partners In Prevention

Partners in Prevention is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since 2010 we have worked to increase awareness of the effects of child abuse and neglect and to promote solutions by supporting prevention services within a wide range of communities.

We are a diverse group of people from all walks of life—business, government and civil society that believe in protecting childhood for children today so they can fulfill their potential as adults tomorrow.

Do You Want To Be A Partner In Prevention?

It doesn’t require a special skill to partner with us and your support will make an enormous difference in the life of a child.

Is there a group in your community that would be interested in participating in this awareness and advocacy work? We want to hear from you!
