About the Blue Ribbon Campaign

In 1989, the Blue Ribbon Campaign to Prevent Child Abuse started as a Virginia grandmother’s tribute to her grandson, who died as a result of abuse.

She tied a blue ribbon to the antenna of her car as a way to remember him and to alert her community to the tragedy of child abuse. The Blue Ribbon Campaign has since expanded across the country.
