TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - Dozens gathered outside the Tippecanoe County Courthouse to raise awareness against child abuse.
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month and Monday marked the start of that for Tippecanoe County.
President of the Tippecanoe Child Abuse Prevention Council Melissa Swathwood says her hope for the month is more people in the community getting involved.
Swathwood says the pinwheels that line the courthouse are a symbol of what every child needs.
"Carefree childhood that all children should have," Swathwood said. "It's free, it's blowing in the wind. It's free to do as it pleases and that's ultimately what we want for all children. So, that's why they chose the pinwheel for prevention."
