The Broward AWARE! Protecting OUR Children campaign is an awareness campaign that uses the full spectrum of media to ensure that Broward County families, educators, media, law enforcement, and all stakeholders use and share resources that make it possible for children to safely realize their full potential, hopes, and dreams. The Broward AWARE campaign is inspired by the work of the Ounce of Prevention Fund of Florida and Prevent Child Abuse/Pinwheels for Prevention Florida. Below, please find activities hosted by local partners to ensure overall knowledge of different subjects.
