The Blue Ribbon

This symbol was established in 1989 when a Virginia grandmother lost her grandson to child abuse. After his death, she tied a blue ribbon to the antenna of her van to alert her community to the ultimate tragedy of abuse. The color blue represents the bruised and battered body of her grandchild, and wearing it serves as a constant reminder to fight for our children.
