November 19 is World Day for the Prevention of Child Abuse.  The World Day, initiated by the Women’s World Summit Foundation (WWSF) in 2000, aims to create a culture of prevention around the world by encouraging governments and community/society organizations to play more active roles in protecting children.  Melissa Jonson-Reid, Ph.D., a child welfare expert and professor of social work at Washington University, St. Louis, offers several ways to become involved in preventing child maltreatment including purchasing a Children’s Trust Fund license plate.
