To commemorate National Child Abuse Prevention Month in April, Montgomery Child Advocacy Project (MCAP) will hold its second annual “MCAP Wear Blue on the Steps” event on Friday, April 3, 2020, from 11:30 am to Noon. The event invites all of Montgomery County to wear blue, the color of prevention, and gather on the steps of the Montgomery County Courthouse to send a strong message that Montgomery County stands united in the fight against child abuse.
The event’s featured speaker is Kristen Feden, who was one of the lead prosecutors in the Bill Cosby sexual assault case and continues to be a staunch advocate for sexual abuse and assault survivors of all ages. The 30-minute program will be led by MCAP’s Executive Director Mary Pugh. MCAP information and swag will be available, and a group photograph will be taken by professional photographer Deana Clement. Starbucks will also be there with complimentary coffee and pastries.
Mary Pugh says of the event: “MCAP served 656 abused children in 2019, which is more than we have ever served before. With ‘MCAP Wear Blue on the Steps’ we’re showing that our community, Montgomery County, stands up and fights child abuse together. We hope to see all of Montgomery County wearing blue on the Courthouse steps on April 3rd to raise awareness and to let kids know we are working every day to protect them.” For more information about the event, please see www.MCAPkids.org/mcapwearblue.
