Annual Events & Activities

CAPA events help raise awareness and funds that support our programs for children and families and help keep kids safe.

CAPAcity:  A City-in-Action Movement

CAPA debuted this City-in-ACTION Movement in April 2017 during Child Abuse Prevention Month.

This month-long effort continues in April 2020 – spreading blue ribbon awareness throughout the entire metro! CAPAcity features multiple community events all to raise awareness about child abuse and support the great work CAPA is doing to keep kids safe.


**Due to precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, all CAPA community events scheduled for

Child Abuse Prevention Month in April have been postponed.

Please check back regularly for information about rescheduled event dates and times**
