2011 Preventing Child Maltreatment and Promoting Well-Being: Network for Action
The 2011 Network for Action Meeting was sponsored by the Office on Child Abuse and Neglect (OCAN), at the Children's Bureau, Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF), Administration for Children and Families (ACF), US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS); in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Division of Violence Prevention's Knowledge to Action Child Maltreatment Prevention Consortium Leadership Group (K2A); and other national organizations and networks that support prevention efforts.

The 2011 Network for Action created . . .
- Shared vision: Before and during the meeting, Network for Action members worked to frame a shared vision for the future of the prevention of child maltreatment and the promotion of well-being. The outcome of the process was the development of a powerful vision video that can be downloaded and shared with your parent groups, staff in your organization, board members and your local and state networks.

- Shared action: Network for Action members moved toward shared action through engagement with a strategic project of national significance and through increasing the strength of their state teams and national networks.
- Stronger networks: Members established stronger relationships with others in the child abuse prevention and family strengthening fields as a basis for meaningful collaboration in local, state, and national networks.
A vision is a powerful thing, and 500 visions is even more powerful. Prior to the Network for Action meeting, participants were invited to share with us the vision statements for their organizations and their own personal statements about what inspires them in their work for prevention of maltreatment and promotion of well being. This graphic depicts the key words that emerged from those vision statements. The size of each word indicates the frequency with which it appeared, and the pattern as a whole captures the ideas and images that inspires us in this important work.
