Public display in Winona shows impact of child abuse

WINONA, Minn. (WKBT) - The signs of child abuse aren't always visible, but a public display is hoping to draw more attention to the problem.

The Family and Children's Center in Winona is putting out blue cutouts in front of their building as part of National Child Abuse Prevention Month.

The cutouts represent the thousands of kids who are abused every year in Minnesota.

Organizers say the display is their way of showing that abuse is a problem everywhere and it's up to everyone to help put an end to it.

"We're educating the public about what can be done, that they need to step forward and get and involved and they make a difference in the lives of the kids, and we recognize those kids who have been abused in support of their journey towards healing," said Family and Children's Center President and CEO Tita Yutuc.

The Family and Children's Center says there were more than 2,000 eported cases of abuse in Winona County last year.
