Public Awareness Materials

Every April, communities all over Texas and the nation observe Child Abuse Prevention Month, raising awareness of child abuse and neglect while promoting resources to support families. We invite you to join this campaign, and we encourage you to use the materials on this website and the national website to spread the word in your community.

Community Action Plans

Raise awareness where you live and work - in schools and businesses, where you worship, in your local media, and more - with these creative and helpful suggestions.

Sample Child Abuse Prevention Month Proclamation

Invite elected officials to proclaim April as Child Abuse Prevention Month. Proclamation events celebrate childhood while promoting awareness of child abuse and neglect.

Sample Letter to the Editor

Write your local newspaper to encourage your community to prevent child abuse and neglect. Newspapers welcome the opportunity to be a voice for good, either through their letters sections or through guest editorials.

Sample News Release

A news release can be sent to media organizations to promote Child Abuse Awareness Month, your local awareness events, or both.

Sample Public Service Announcements

Radio stations love to run public service announcements to build goodwill and fill unsold advertising time. Use these suggestions to make your own spots.
