To the editor: April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. In 2009, Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina celebrates 30 years of working to make our state a better place for children and families.
North Carolina is a much bigger, diverse and more populous place than it was when PCANC started this work. North Carolina has 40 percent more children than it did 30 years ago.
This is our most vulnerable population, but also one that offers us great hope. These children are our future workers, teachers, voters, professionals and parents.
