Support child abuse prevention; Wear Blue to Work on April 8
BATAVIA, Ohio (March 26, 2015) – April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. As part of that, Ohio has designated April 8 as Wear Blue to Work Day to demonstrate support for services that prevent and mitigate child abuse, and help children grow up in a healthy and nurturing environment.
Clermont County employers are encouraged to ask their employees to wear blue to work on April 8.
“Asking people to wear blue to work on April 8 may not seem like a big deal,” said Dick. “But if a lot of workplaces do it on April 8, it reinforces that we in Clermont County know about this issue, are concerned about this issue, and support services that work to prevent child abuse.”
Companies and organizations that wear blue on April 8 are asked to post pictures of their staff to their Facebook page and notify Kathleen Williams, communications coordinator at Clermont County, firstname.lastname@example.org. She will share those photos on the county’s Facebook page and Twitter feed. Common hashtags include #ChildAbuseIsPreventable #OhioWearsBlue and #ClermontCounty.
