Pinwheels are the national symbol for child abuse prevention. By its very nature, the pinwheel connotes whimsy and childlike notions - it has come to serve as a reminder of the safe, stable, and nurturing childhoods we want for all children.
Communities have a BIG influence in families’ lives. Just like a plant is more likely to thrive in a garden with good soil and plenty of sunlight and water, families are more likely to thrive in nurturing communities. Every year, hundreds of organizations and passionate advocates and volunteers come together in Colorado and throughout the nation to make raising awareness for the prevention of child abuse a priority in April.
This year, the Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign in Colorado is offering much more to give local communities and individuals the tools to inspire a conversation in your organization, classroom, neighborhood, county and community in April and all year long.
