BROOKLYN - State Sen. Eric Adams is launching a child abuse prevention program (CAPP) to help kick off Child Abuse Prevention Month.

The program, One Simple Step Can Change a Child's Life, promotes the types of resources that are available to New Yorkers. CAPP's workshops use life-size puppets to teach children how to recognize, resist and report abuse.

Marion White, director of CAPP, said it's important for children to be educated on abuse since some are not aware of what abuse is or how to recognize it.
