The month of April is recognized nationally as Child Abuse Prevention Month, and in Northern Kentucky, communities are invited to take action through awareness events and “Blue Ribbon Tree” ceremonies.
Statistics show that NKY ranks higher than state and national averages in the area of child abuse and neglect. To help improve those numbers, groups like the Family Nurturing Center
are hosting awareness and action events for the month of April and beyond.
Events include Wear Blue Days, a Blue Ribbon 5k/10k race on May 14 and “Kids on the Block,” a traveling series that visits area schools to discuss bullying and school safety.
