Kid's Day at the Capitol April 2018 

IMG_5830 The Office of Child Abuse Prevention (OCAP) celebrated Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month throughout April by hosting several events and activities, including a fundraiser for the State Children’s Fund, Children’s Memorial Flag Exhibit, a showcase of blue ribbons and pinwheels in our building, and a banner display at the State Capitol.  Additionally, the OCAP and the Child Abuse Prevention Center hosted Kid’s Day at the Capitol, bringing together organizations from across California who share a common goal that no child suffers from abuse or neglect. 

More than 50 organizations and businesses joined us for Kid’s Day at the Capitol and we welcomed hundreds of attendees comprised of parents, children, teachers and other family service providers.  The day’s agenda included guest speakers, performances and various activities for children and families. This was one of many efforts by the OCAP and the Child Abuse Prevention Center to inspire leaders and encourage community and civic responsibility, because when families, friends, and neighbors support one another while working toward a common goal, children are healthier and safer. We are thrilled to have co-hosted such a successful event and we would like to thank all of our participants and attendees.

We would like to thank you all for your work to promote CAP Month within your communities! It’s the hard work and dedication from people like you across the state that makes all the difference in the lives of children and families.
