Join Prevent Child Abuse Louisiana Thursday, Mar. 24 as we kick off Child Abuse Prevention Month with our annual Community Engagement Luncheon!

We welcome Laura Porter, Co-Founder of ACE Interface, LLC as our keynote speaker. Laura will present, "After ACEs: Building Resilience and Community Awareness." Now that we know about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), Laura will talk to us about how to build resiliency in those with high ACE scores and how to increase community awareness about ACEs and the need for child abuse prevention.

Newly appointed DCFS Secretary Marketa Walters will join us, as we hope you will, too! The event is free, but you must register by Friday, Mar. 18.

*Guests are welcome, but they must register individually.
*No CEU credits will be given for the presentation. 

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

We have Community Pinwheel Plantings being held in eight cities, along with a "Kendra Gives Back" Party to end the month and get you ready for Mother's Day! Make plans for your own pinwheel garden, buy a T-shirt or just send out your support for Louisiana's children and families on social media during this month to help raise awareness that, anyway you spin it, prevention IS possible!

Thank you to our Child Abuse Prevention Month Sponsors!
