Every October, Children’s Aid Societies across Ontario raise awareness about the important role that individuals and communities play in supporting vulnerable children, youth, and families through the provincial Dress Purple Day campaign. Learn more about why it's not Child Abuse Prevention Month anymore and a call to join Dress Purple Day 2022!
The campaign is more important than ever, since the COVID-19 pandemic has created additional stressors for families, and in some cases has increased risk for the well-being and safety of children and youth.
We are focusing on centering the voice of our children and youth where eradicating all forms of oppression, racism, intolerance, prejudice, and discrimination remains a top priority. Together we will continue to speak up for every child and youth’s right to safety and well-being in all spaces.
We will dress purple on October 27 to show children, youth, and families that we are here to help. Will you?
Join Us for a Virtual Community Duty to Report: A Free Online Workshop to learn more about Peel Children's Aid Society and how you can help support children, youth and families in Peel. This workshop will provide you with knowledge about the child welfare system and ways of identifying and discussing child protection concerns. It's a community responsibility to keep children and youth safe.
Wednesday, October 26 from 9:30am - 11am via Zoom.
