DCCRW Participates in Child Abuse Event
April, 2010

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month
The realities of child abuse:

• In 2009, the rate of children dying from abuse or neglect rose 30 percent.
• Texas has the highest number of child deaths due to abuse, while the U.S. has the  
       highest child death rate in the world.

• Every 6 hours a child is killed by abuse or neglect.
• Over 90 percent of the time, children are victimized not by strangers, but by people
       they know and trust.


Prevention is Key - What Can I Do?
The first step in preventing child abuse is awareness and education. On Friday, April 9, the 3rd annual Dallas County Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Event took place featuring keynote speaker Texas Senator Florence Shapiro.  Numerous organizations
participated in this non-partisan event honoring the memory of the 29 children who died in Dallas County in 2009. The event also recognized the dedication of our CPS workers in protecting our children. Over 300 volunteers and CPS workers attended the heart-
warming and inspiring event.

Senator Shapiro commended Dallas County Council of Republican Women and Northwood Republican Women for their participation and contributions toward the cost of gifts for the CPS workers. She encouraged us to continue to be out in the community working to find solutions to core problems that transcend politics. Republican women are compassionate and care deeply about these issues.
