Child Maltreatment Prevention Awareness Campaign Planning Committee Meeting
March 17 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
26 people are attending Child Maltreatment Prevention Awareness Campaign Planning Committee Meeting
As the Colorado Chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America, Illuminate Colorado leads the Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign in Colorado and a collaborative effort to raise awareness during child abuse prevention month each year. Since 2009, this collaborative effort in Colorado has grown exponentially over the years with hundreds of local organizations and thousands of passionate people organizing pinwheels displays – one of the many ways we work together to inspire conversations about how to strengthening families in Colorado.
Last year, more 40,000 pinwheels were ordered by Coloradans in 119 different cities, promoting more than 62 million messages through earned media, paid media and organic social media reaching more than 81,000 Coloradans to strengthen families during this stressful time in our lives.
We encourage elected officials, community and state partners, educators, employers, parents, caregivers and young people who are passionate about strengthening families to get more involved, collaborate and guide activities for April Child Abuse Prevention Month in 2022.
If you’d like to get more involved in the planning committee or just want to inform the awareness campaigns goals and activities in 2022, PLEASE JOIN US!
