Thank you for your dedication & support in joining the Campaign against Child Abuse & Neglect!

Why the Blue Ribbon?

In 1989, the Blue Ribbon Campaign to Prevent Child Abuse began as a Virginia grandmother's tribute to her grandson who died as a result of abuse. 

She tied a blue ribbon to the antenna of her car as a way to remember him and to alert her community to the tragedy of child abuse.

The Blue Ribbon Campaign has since expanded across the country; many people wear blue ribbons each April in memory of those who have died as a result of child abuse and in support of efforts to prevent abuse.

The blue ribbon is only a symbol. It is up to all of us to keep the Nurturing Parenting Campaign against Child Abuse and Neglect going throughout the year.
