Step Up for Kids

Step Up for Kids


Wednesday, April 24 - 10:30 am
Massachusetts State House, Grand Staircase

Each April, we gather at the Grand Staircase of the Massachusetts State House to recognize Child Abuse Prevention Month. You'll learn about our prevention work and how you can help keep kids safe and healthy. 

70 pairs of shoes will line the Grand Staircase to represent the average number of confirmed child abuse and neglect cases in Massachusetts every day. 

Senator Michael J. Rodrigues, Chair of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means, and Representative Paul J. Donato, Second Division Chair, will be honored for their commitment to Massachusetts children and families.
