MDC Freedom Tower Will Go Blue in Support of Child Abuse Prevention

Miami Dade College (MDC) will illuminate its National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower in blue in commemoration of Amigos For Kids’ annual month-long activities during National Child Abuse Prevention Month in April. The Tower will be illuminated at sundown on Saturday, March 31, and then again on Monday, April 30, to mark the beginning and end of activities.

Amigos For Kids, a non-profit dedicated to preventing child abuse, will kick-off festivities with its Second Annual Celebration for Friendship Luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel at 11:30 a.m. on Mar. 31.

Amigos For Kids is a 501(C) 3 nonprofit corporation founded in 1991 to respond to the diverse needs of South Florida’s abused abandoned, neglected, and less-fortunate children and their families, through education, abuse prevention, and community involvement. To fulfill its mission, Amigos relies on the support of dedicated volunteers and donors throughout the community. Throughout the year, the organization creates awareness of its cause through public service campaigns, fundraising events, and community efforts such as the Amigos For Kids, There’s NO excuse for child abuse! ® campaign.

Miami Dade College is the nation’s largest institution of higher education with an enrollment of more than 174,000 students. It is also the nation’s top producer of Associate in Arts and Science degrees. The college’s eight campuses and outreach centers offer more than 300 distinct degree programs including several baccalaureate degrees in education, public safety, supervision and management, nursing and others. In fact, its academic and workforce training programs have served as national models of excellence. MDC is also renowned for its rich cultural programming. It is home of the Miami Book Fair International, Miami International Film Festival, the Cultura del Lobo performing arts series, the National Historic Landmark Miami Freedom Tower, a sculpture park and a large art gallery and theater system.
