THE ISSUE

In the next minute a child will be a victim
of violence or neglect.


girl

America’s children suffer from a hidden epidemic. Every year over 3 million children are victims of violence and neglect, and those are only the ones that are reported. National statistics from 2012 showed increases in some forms of child maltreatment for the first time in many years. While overall substantiated child maltreatment was flat from 2011 to 2012, there was a 2% rise in sexual abuse and a 5% rise in physical abuse. Neglect declined 3% but child maltreatment fatalities rose 4% from 1,557 to 1,620.

Because this epidemic is so under-reported, the actual number of children being harmed is 3 times greater. Approximately 3.3 million reports and allegations were made involving an estimated 6 million children in 2009. Every ten seconds, violence and neglect against children is reported. Almost five children die every day as a result of violence and neglect. Nearly 600,000 children live in foster care. Almost 1.8 million are abducted. The Center for Disease Control estimates the cost of child abuse for a lifetime is $124 Billion. Read more about child violence and abuse in the U.S. here

teengirlAnd every day 1 out of 7 kids and teens are approached online by predators, 1 out of 4 kids are bullied. Depending on the age group, 43% of students say they have been digitally harassed. 9 out of 10 LGBT students experienced harassment at school and online. 8% of students miss at least 1 day of class per month for fear of Bullies Suicides as a result of bullying are senseless. No one deserves to bullied for any reason.

GET BLUE
Blue Ribbon Campaign

A child's voice is small, ignored and unheard. 
Raise the volume so that everyone hears their message ...

GET BLUE ... 
Wear A Blue Ribbon All Year Round! 

.

Every April, the nation unites to raise awareness and educate the public about child abuse prevention.

In 1982, President Ronald Reagan declared by Presidential Proclamation that April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Since that time, child abuse awareness activities have been promoted every April throughout America by millions of people throughout the USA.

The Blue Ribbon Campaign has gained national momentum. Love Our Children USA wants you to GET BLUE ... ALL YEAR ROUND!

Play a role in the awareness of violence and neglect against children. Demonstrate your concern and commitment and GET BLUE! 

Wear your Blue Ribbon pin and bracelet and others will want to GET BLUE with you.
 It's a powerful way to rally everyone in your community to support public awareness for violence prevention programs that help parents and children.

Love Our Children USA offers you the opportunity to join this national movement in your very own community. You can be the voices for children working to remind everyone about the importance of how we can share in breaking the cycle of violence and neglect against children.

Child Abuse Prevention Month activities every April are one way everyone in your community can play a role in violence prevention. It's a way to rally everyone in your community to support programs that help protect children.

During the month of April, let our Nation's voices for children reaffirm our commitment to protect our children. Organize or join a community group that offers information or assistance to parents and families. Speak out against child abuse and neglect. By changing social behaviors and attitudes for the way we live today, and generating positive change, millions of children can be saved, allowing them to grow up healthy, loved, safe and nurtured.
