Join us on October 24 and dress purple, take a picture and tweet #IBREAKthesilence & #Peelgoespurple on twitter to help raise awareness on children and youth’s rights to safety and well-being.
"The goal of this initiative is to remind everyone that keeping children safe and well is a shared community responsibility” says Rav Bains, CEO, Peel CAS “We encourage people to call CAS if you are concerned about the safety and well being of a child." Professionals like teachers, physicians and those who work with children are required to call CAS if they suspect a child may be at risk of harm. However, it is also important for others like friends, family members or neighbours to call if they are worried about a child’s safety and well being. "It's important to make the call if you have a concern about a child," adds Bains. "We all have to work together to keep kids safe."
We are excited to announce that this year Peel CAS will participate in the provincial #IBREAKthesilence social media campaign and we would like your help getting Dress Purple day to the number one trending topic on Twitter. We want to see you get creative as we raise awareness on the rights of children and youth to safety and well being. Show your commitment by donning purple, taking pictures and using the hashtags #IBREAKthesilence & #Peelgoespurple on Twitter.
