This activity took place on December 8, 2017. Members of the public at the routes 40, 41, 42, 46, 47, 48, and 32 bus park were engaged in this campaign.
The bumper stickers encourages persons recognize that they have a role in protecting children from child abuse by reporting any known case of child abuse. The brochures titled, “Seven Ways to Educate with Love” has simple messages encouraging parents to use non violent methods of correction.
Some members of the public were encouraged by the activity stating their aversion for abusing children. However, there were several members of the public who were insistent that corporal punishment is necessary because of the frustrations parents experience. This is a reminder that there is a lot of work to do to ensure that children have the opportunity to grow up in a safe and secure family and community.
