April is Child Abuse Prevention Month - throughout the month, we raise awareness, increase communities’ capacity to strengthen families, educate children on their right to be safe, and expand policy makers’ understanding of child abuse prevention.

2018 RESOURCES & TOOLS
(Updated 2019 info to be posted soon)
Prevent Child Abuse America, who holds the trademark registration for the blue and silver pinwheel asks we don’t associate pinwheels with victims/substantiations numbers. Pinwheels may be equated with general statement of support for great childhoods and healthy development. Associate them with live births in your county, number of children/families you serve, or another positive imagery. The Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign does not want to reinforce negative images that may be counter-productive to the symbol's image of hope, health and happiness.
Pinwheels for Prevention® is a registered U.S. trademark held by Prevent Child Abuse America (Reg. No. 2,800,287). Therefore, partners cannot use the elements of Pinwheels for Prevention® or the blue pinwheel mark without written permission from the state chapter and, if used, must be accompanied with the PCA America/Kentucky logo for proper attribution. Any organization who uses these trademarked components without written permission or misuses the marks will be notified of trademark infringement.
