Go Blue Lubbock

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Every day in Lubbock County an average of 3 children become confirmed victims of child abuse and neglect. The majority of victims are under the age of 3.
 
During the month of April, Lubbock area organizations come together to promote Go Blue Lubbock, a project of the South Plains Coalition for Child Abuse Prevention (SPCCAP). The purpose of Go Blue Lubbock is to bring awareness to the issue of child abuse and neglect and to educate our community about how to prevent the problem.
 
You can join this effort by wearing blue during April and participating in the many events hosted by SPCCAP and partnering agencies listed below.
