Kansas CAP Month Activities
Throughout National Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month in April, KCSL as the Kansas chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America® (PCA America) alongside other chapters, affiliates and supporting organizations recognized the importance of community-based support for all children and families. Again the theme, “Growing a Better Tomorrow for All Children, Together,” was used to build on the momentum of last year’s impact and awareness campaign.
CAP Month Activities in Kansas
A hybrid of in-person and virtual events allowed people across the state to dig in and bring awareness for prevention efforts. Many businesses and organizations shared their CAP Month activities and pinwheel gardens on our Facebook page. Despite April 2022 marking the third year CAP Month occurred during the pandemic, some familiar events restarted with much success. Major events included Wear Blue Day April 1 and Family Fun Day at Sedgwick County Zoo and prevention night during a Sporting KC game returned on April 23 with great attendance. PCA America hosted a nationwide Digital Advocacy Day on April 27 as an opportunity to contact elected officials and spread the word about policy change vital to the well-being of children and their families. Furthering our commitment to helping children, families and entire communities to thrive, KCSL also launched the #GrowingBetterTogether digital ad campaign continuing through the fall.
