April is the Time to Unfurl Your Children's Memorial Flag

3/31/2005:   During April, help heighten awareness of child abuse and neglect and the number of children who die violently every year by flying a Children's Memorial Flag. CWLA launched the initiative in 1998, and since that time hundreds of communities have flown the flag and held ceremonies in its honor on the fourth Friday in April.

CWLA has made it easy for member agencies and others to take part in the Children's Memorial Flag initiative. Go to www.cwla.org/advocacy/memorialflag.htm to order flags, as well as bumper stickers, magnets, and lapel pins depicting the flag. Images of the flag and ads for print and the web are also downloadable from the site. Tips on how to engage corporations in your community in flag activities, and examples of how communities have celebrated the flag in past years, are accessible here as well.

Another way to show support for the Children's Memorial Flag initiative is to participate in CWLA's online charity auctions on eBay, April 15-22. To learn more about the auction and how you can get involved, visit http://www.ebay.com/cwla, or e-mail auctions@cwla.org.
