Help raise awareness of child abuse by joining “Hands Around the Courthouse” on Friday, April 15, at noon in the Peoria County Courthouse Plaza.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and the Youth Services Network Panel is hosting its Ninth Annual Hands Around the Courthouse event to draw attention to the 872 pending child abuse and neglect cases in Peoria County.

During the event, advocacy officials will say a few words about the unfortunate cases still pending and the importance of child abuse prevention.

“Hands Around the Courthouse” participants are encouraged to wear blue to show their support of Child Abuse Prevention Month.

For more information about the event, please call Court Appointed Special Advocates or CASA at (309) 669-2939.
