On this page you will find downloads for social media images, conversation GIFS & guides, PDFs for a coloring page and pinwheel activity, customizable media templates, and links to additional resources. Images can be easily downloaded by right-clicking or following the links provided.

    YARD SIGNS (click to view): CACWA has a limited number of yard signs available. They are 18″ x 24″ corrugated signs with metal H-stakes included. We will send these directly to CACs when available

    POSTERS (click to see images): CACWA will send two different posters to CACs.

    Start raising awareness today! Here are some images you can use leading up to WEAR BLUE DAY on Friday, April 1st! We encourage CACs to promote Child Abuse Prevention month by asking community businesses, organizations, and individuals to wear blue on April 1 and take a selfie or image of their group and share it on social media.
