NATIONAL CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION MONTH, 2010

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

A PROCLAMATION

Our children are our most valuable resource, and they need

our support to thrive and grow into healthy, productive adults.

During National Child Abuse Prevention Month, we renew our

unwavering commitment to protecting children and responding to

child abuse, promoting healthy families, and building a brighter

future for all Americans.

Every child deserves a nurturing family and a safe

environment, free from fear, abuse, and neglect. Tragically,

sexual, emotional, and physical abuse threaten too many children

every day in communities across our Nation. Parents, guardians,

relatives, and neighbors all share a responsibility to prevent

these devastating crimes, and our government plays a critical

role as well.

My Administration is committed to helping future

generations succeed. We are focused on engaging parents

in their children’s early learning and development, ensuring

the safety and well-being of all families, and creating

opportunities for all Americans. We are also partnering with

Federal, State, and local agencies to better coordinate early

childhood services and improve the lives of young children

and their families.

Together, we can ensure that every child grows up in

a safe, stable, and nurturing environment, free from

abuse and neglect. I encourage all Americans to visit:

http://www.ChildWelfare.gov/Preventing to learn what they can do

to stop child abuse in their communities.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the

United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in

me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby

proclaim April 2010 as National Child Abuse Prevention Month.

I call upon all Americans to observe this month with programs

and activities that help prevent child abuse and provide for

children’s physical, emotional, and developmental needs.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this

first day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand ten,

and of the Independence of the United States of America the

two hundred and thirty-fourth.

BARACK OBAMA

Lover, Fighter, Friend, Journalist, and Activist.
