The Alameda County Board of Supervisors and the East Bay Regional Park District invite you to attend the Thirteenth Annual National Children’s Memorial Flag Day as we remember the children who have died by violence in Alameda County and across the United States.  In 2008, 19 children in Alameda County died by violence.   Since the Children’s Memorial Flag Project began in 1994, a total of 339 Alameda County children under the age of 18 have died by violence between 1993 and 2008.

 

The Children’s Memorial Flag flies in Alameda County whenever a child dies by violence.

The Child Welfare League of America promotes the Children’s Memorial Flag nationwide,

and the National Association of Counties also endorses its use.
