April is Child Abuse Prevention Month
The Bonnie Finney Story
The blue ribbon has been widely recognized as a national symbol of child abuse awareness. The movement began in 1989 when a concerned grandmother, Bonnie Finney of Norfolk, Virginia, took a stand against child abuse after experiencing the death of her grandson. She tied a symbolic blue ribbon to her van as a signal for the community of her commitment to involving everyone in the battle to stop child abuse.
Bonnie’s grandson, Michael Wayne Dickenson, was a young victim and his tragic death gave her the strength to encourage others to help in the fight against child abuse and neglect. As a result, the spirit of the blue ribbon grew, and it inspired a community-based effort to join forces in this tragic battle. Wearing a blue ribbon pin or wristband during April acknowledges that many children are victims of abuse and neglect and that prevention is the key to reducing it.
