Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt and the Kansas State Child Death Review Board are encouraging Kansans to wear blue and post a picture on social media with the hashtag #WearBlueDay today to increase awareness of child abuse. The effort is part of April’s observance of Child Abuse Prevention Month and the Blue Ribbon Campaign to Prevent Child Abuse. Under normal circumstances, Kansans are encouraged to wear blue to the workplace to increase awareness. Due to stay at home orders in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, today’s focus has shifted to raising awareness online. April was first declared as Child Abuse Prevention Month by President Ronald Reagan in 1983. For additional information on child abuse and neglect, visit www.ag.ks.gov, or call (785) 296-7970.
