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 takes place annually – spreading blue ribbon awareness throughout the entire metro during the month of April! 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 2020 have been postponed. Please check back regularly for information about rescheduled event dates and times**
