On Tuesday, October 24, 2017 communities across Ontario will DRESS PURPLE to break the silence and show their commitment to children’s rights to safety and well-being. On Dress Purple Day we acknowledge that it takes a village to keep kids safe. Everybody in the community plays a role in supporting children’s rights.

In 2017, Children’s Aid Societies will be working collaboratively during Child Abuse Prevention Month and Dress Purple Day with Boards of Education, a key partner in supporting the safety and well-being of children and youth.
