March 2019

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

April is Child Abuse Prevention month. To bring about awareness of this very important issue, you should see an abundance of blue across the state of Missouri. We want you to be a part of it, so for the month of April, show your blue! The pinwheel is the national symbol for child abuse prevention and we will be planting a garden of them in a few select locations. These pinwheels represent hope, health, and happiness, the very essence of childhood. If you would like to order pinwheels to plant your own garden, let us know. We appreciate your support!

The official #GoBlue date for 2019 has been set for April 5. If you ordered a one of our t-shirts, you are bluing double duty in the Awareness Department and we love that you are! Bringing prevention to the forefront is one small thing YOU can easily do when it comes to keeping kids safe. Thank you for being a part of the CAC movement.

Crack-down on Sexual Misconduct By Teachers

House Bill 739 will ensure that teachers who have a record of sexual misconduct will not be dismissed from one school only to end up employed at another.  This is commonly known as "pass the trash" and puts Missouri children at risk.  Those that seek to harm children put themselves where the children are.  This Bill is sponsored by Rep. Rocky Miller, R-Lake Ozark.  It has the support of Missouri KidsFirst, representing all Child Advocacy Centers in Missouri.  Read the full article here:  No More Passing the Trash
