The Child Abuse Prevention Month campaign, which is marking its 25th anniversary this year in Ontario, takes place annually during the month of October.

This year – on October 24, 2017 — communities, boards of education, and schools across Ontario will Dress Purple to collectively speak up and share the message that child abuse and neglect can be prevented and that help is available.

The tag line for Dress Purple Day is “It takes a village to keep kids safe.” The social media hashtag for Dress Purple Day is #IBREAKthesilence.

For more information – and a wide variety of resources about Dress Purple Day – please visit the Ontario Association of Children’s Aid Societies.
