Raise Awareness about Child Abuse—and Have Fun
According to Kidsdata.org, nearly half a million Californian children ages 0–17 reported abuse or neglect in 2018. The Children’s Advocacy Walk and Festival aims to raise awareness of the plight of these kids. The free festival, which will feature games and food, will be held on April 23, 10 a.m.–3 p.m., at Library Park in Lakeport. For more information, go to lakecoe.org/childabuseprevention. Those who would like to show support for Child Abuse Prevention Month, in April, can plant a pinwheel garden.
