Colors of Life

A Mission to End Child Abuse

Here is a short video featuring Michael Petit, President of Every Child Matters, the non profit to which our 2011 International Photocontest has been dedicated. Michael has been interviewed by Brooke Baldwin CNN anchorwoman and has highlighted in his speech the need for the creation of a National Commission to protect US children’s rights.

Colors of Life together with Every Child Matters and TexProtects has presented a photo exhibition highlighting the needs of children and has challenged the Government to make children a priority in the public policy and elections debate as 65,948 Texas children were confirmed as abuse victims in 2011. After its viewing at NorthPark, the exhibition will be on display at the State Capitol in Austin followed by the National Press Club in Washington D.C. on May 6th 2012.
