Wear Blue Lorain County - April 12, 2023

Wear Blue is a statewide awareness campaign that takes place on the second Wednesday of every April, Child Abuse Prevention

Month. Ohioans are encouraged to wear blue that day – to work, to school, to a community event – to show support for preventing child abuse and neglect.

Post a photo of you and your coworkers, friends, neighbors, fellow students, and others wearing blue on your county children services agency’s Facebook page or on the Ohio Wears Blue page
