MuMu, the local chapter of the criminal justice honor society Alpha Phi Sigma has partnered with the Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA) to bring attention to the issue of child abuse. Nationally, more than 2 million reports of abuse and neglect are made each year, and more than 1,500 children die from their injuries. Missouri has one of the highest child abuse mortality rates in the nation.
UMKC faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to wear blue on April 19 in support of this cause.
