MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

April is designated as Child Abuse Prevention month and our opportunity to spotlight individuals and programs in all of our communities that work 365 days a year to prevent the most despicable form of cancer on our society, child abuse and neglect. 

With 112 community partners working on a shoestring budget we have effectively helped to reduce the number of child deaths in the 0-3 age group from unsafe sleeping and abusive head trauma through education and training. 

This is just one example of prevention saving lives and contributing to the quality of life for every Alabamian

There will be events around the state that will celebrate prevention and raise awareness; the Alabama Department of Child Abuse Prevention will be holding our 5th Annual "Children's Trust Fund" Rally on the State House steps, April 17, at 10:00. 

Rene' Howitt the author of "Whose Best Interest? a fight to save two American kids" will be the Keynote Speaker.

Please join us to show your support for the children and families of our great state.

Kelley Parris, MSM
Alabama Department of Child Abuse Prevention
Director
