Trees for Life

Child advocates in the greater New Orleans area gathered to commemorate the 42 children who died from abuse and neglect in Louisiana during 2012. The event was hosted at the New Orleans Children’s Advocacy Center on April 22nd, 2013.

At the ceremony child advocates were honored with a tree representing a child who died from abuse or neglect. When the honoree was awarded their tree, the child’s age and the reason for their death was read to the audience. The honoree was asked to plant their tree and to hang a blue ribbon on it every April in tribute to the child who died. The blue ribbon represents Child Abuse Prevention.
