City Council recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month

On April 5, CM Jim Graham, chair of the Committee on Human Services, introduced "Child Abuse Prevention Month Resolution of 2011."   The resolution demonstrates the City Council's "support for child abuse prevention, encourages the public to ensure the protection and care of the District’s children and families through heightened awareness and preventative services for abused and neglected children."

The resolution also identifies organizations in the District playing a role in child abuse and neglect prevention.   These include Mary's Center for Maternal and Child Care and Sasha Bruce Youthwork.
