Child Abuse Prevention Month and more recently, the Dress Purple Campaign, has had harmful impacts for Indigenous, African Canadian, and other equity seeking communities. The campaign’s historical focus on child abuse prevention encouraged reporting to Children’s Aid Societies, which regularly resulted in increased surveillance of these communities by the child welfare system and contributed to the overrepresentation of Indigenous and African Canadian families in the system.
