Advocates in Duluth are preparing to take a stand with kids in April as a statement against child abuse.

First Witness Child Advocacy Center is asking people non-profits and businesses to sponsor a “Blue Kid” in April.

All the money raised will directly help First Witness continue programming for children ages 12 and under who are affected by abuse.

“Families that come in for advocacy services, there’s no charge for that, there’s no end date. We’re there to be a second brain for them or just to provide support, validation, or referrals — and that’s at no cost to them,” said Ina Newston, and advocate at First Witness.

Blue, by the way, is the color for child abuse prevention and awareness.
