Going Blue to #protectpakids

The State Street Corridor and the State Capitol featured 4,416 blue ribbons flags as a tribute to each child victim of abuse in Pennsylvania in one year and there was a special memorial of 46 black ribbons, one for each child PA lost to abuse in 2016 – the last year for which we have statewide statistics. During the Awards Ceremony, children presented 46 pairs of children’s shoes and baby booties to symbolize that violence had cut short their path to adulthood.

Pennsylvania Family Support Alliance and PSECU® team up to promote greater awareness of how to protect children from abuse and neglect. The “PA Blue Ribbon Champion for Safe Kids” campaign brings together businesses, community and non-profit organizations, schools, religious institutions, and everyday residents to learn and adopt proven, research-based strategies to diffuse potentially dangerous situations involving children. And the campaign encourages each of us to play a role by finding out how to recognize and report suspected cases of child abuse.

Pennsylavania Family Support Alliance educates,informs and leads communities to action to protect children from abuse and neglect.
