The month of April has been designated as Child Abuse Prevention and Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) in the United States. It is a time to raise awareness about the prevalence and devastating effects of these behaviors and crimes, and to educate individuals, families, and communities about what they can do to prevent and put a stop to them.Read More
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. This month and throughout the year, Alianza, the National Latino Alliance for the Elimination of Domestic Violence encourages all individuals and organizations to play a role in making our communities a better place for children and families. By ensuring that parents have the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to care for their children, we can help promote children’s social and emotional well-being and prevent child maltreatment within families and communities.
