L.A. County Launches New Baby Safe Surrender Outreach Campaign

Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe celebrated the success of the County’s Baby Safe Surrender program yesterday with an event highlighting the launch of a new awareness campaign and a birthday celebration for Nicholas, a former Safe Surrender baby. The new Baby Safe Surrender campaign will expand the program’s outreach to communities across Los Angeles County by launching in multiple languages, collaborating with community-based organizations and relying on a mix of traditional and grassroots awareness efforts. The campaign includes billboards, posters, bumper stickers, brochures and a redesigned website.

“A unique aspect of this Safe Surrender outreach campaign will be our partnerships with community-based organizations throughout the County,” said Supervisor Knabe. “We are really reaching out to influential members of the community—promotoras, church leaders, and local health providers—to help us spread the word that there is a better choice: No shame. No blame. No names.”
