You can expect much more in 2020 to help raise awareness during Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Illuminate heard from several organizations who’ve ordered pinwheels in the past and developed some ideas that we plan to bring to Colorado communities in the new year including:

  • NEW – Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign website highlighting inspirational ways to strengthen families, organizations planting/distributing pinwheels – January 2020
  • Updated community planning guide to raise awareness during Child Abuse Prevention Month – January 2020
  • NEW Speakers bureau training to promote the prevention of child maltreatment in the community – Feb/March 2020
  • Tool-kit for media outlets highlighting positive social norms, positive language and framing as well as story ideas that strengthen families. Feb/March 2020
  • NEW creative content and a complete tool-kit to raise awareness for the prevention of child maltreatment in Colorado. Feb/March/April 2020
  • Event at the State Capitol to collectively kick-off a month of awareness efforts – April 2020

Follow our blog our our social media channels to be the first to know when they resources become available.

  • get more involved in awareness activities,
  • receive more support in your community to change social norms, or

Other Awareness Efforts

Illuminate also anticipates launching a tool-kit to support building social connections in communities and an awareness campaign focused specifically on preventing child sexual abuse in 2020, in addition to lifting up other positive creative content on the national, state and local level. For example, take a minute to check out the See Me Colorado Campaign that launched this month focusing on how we as Coloradans can address mental health and addiction.
