The Parent Child Center is proud to be participating in the March Against Child Abuse on Monday April 22nd.
For the first time in American history on April 22, 2013, individuals in over 150 cities and 45 states will join together in national walks to raise awareness of child abuse and crimes against children. Participating cities include Washington D.C., Tulsa, Chicago, Atlanta, Boston, Phoenix, Los Angeles, and Charlotte, along with many others. We are asking all citizens to participate. In Tulsa, we plan to rally in front of the Tulsa County Court House on the Plaza. We will have speakers, signs, marchers, and other activities planned throughout the day.
This is a nationwide effort to unite all child advocates for peaceful demonstrations against child abuse and neglect. We seek to educate the public about this epidemic in hopes that more people will be persuaded to take a stand for the needs of children and prevent further tragedies.
