Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - The 'I Stand for Kids' movement is an effort headed by the First Witness Child Abuse Resource Center, in Duluth, as a part of Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Throughout the month, the center will be offering advice via their website, Facebook page and on the radio about how to help prevent child abuse.

The center is also encouraging any Northland community member to make an 'I Stand with Kids' video of their own.

"We have been asking people throughout the community to make 'I Stand with Kids' videos, and then we'll be posting them on our website, and on our Facebook account. It's a way for people to get involved, and to show why they stand for kids, so they don't have to stand alone," said Beth Olson, Executive Director of the First Witness Child Abuse Resource Center.

Northlanders are also encouraged to purchase a 'blue kids' figure, which will be displayed along the Lakewalk on April 30th. All proceeds will go to victims of child abuse and their families.
