Several local organizations joined today in Lufkin to proclaim April National Child Abuse Prevention Month.
Organizations represented included Child Protective Services and Buckner's Children and Family Services. The gathering included a ribbon cutting on the steps of the Angelina County Court House. Representatives say the ribbon cutting signified ''cutting out child abuse''.
