CINCINNATI (AP) - Child-welfare workers across Ohio are planning to wear blue and invite others to join them in promoting awareness and prevention of child abuse.

They’re calling Wednesday “Ohio Wears Blue: Child Abuse is Preventable” day. They want to have more discussions about the problem and about reporting it and preventing it. April is national Child Abuse Prevention Month.

In Hamilton County, which has had two recent, widely publicized, child deaths, local political leaders, media personalities and other officials are expected to join in wearing blue.

WDBZ radio will broadcast live from Cincinnati’s downtown Fountain Square at noontime as volunteers pass out child-abuse prevention information. The large video screen at the square will play child-abuse prevention messages through the month.
