Symbols of Hope for Child Abuse Awareness Month

Blue Pinwheels

Throughout the month of April,

individuals and organizations display blue pinwheels in gardens, parks, and other public spaces to draw attention to the issue of child abuse and to promote the message of prevention. These pinwheel gardens serve as a visual reminder of the collective responsibility to safeguard the well-being of children and to support families in creating stable, loving homes.

The blue pinwheel is a symbol of childhood innocence,

happiness, and the bright futures that all children deserve. It serves as a powerful reminder of the need to protect our most vulnerable citizens and ensure that they grow up in safe, nurturing environments. The use of pinwheels as a symbol for Child Abuse Awareness Month began with Prevent Child Abuse America, which launched the Pinwheels for Prevention campaign to create a tangible representation of the happy and healthy childhoods that every child is entitled to.
