-- Inspired by the red ribbon project of the Visual AIDS artist in 1991 against HIV AIDS and its immediate impact at reducing the scourge of the deadly disease, Breaking The Silence, an action research project at the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus, Trinidad and Tobago is partnering with The Pin People http://www.thepinpeople.com to help transform the symbol of their child sexual awareness campaign into a handcrafted lapel pin that can be worn by people. The ethnic and gender sensitive symbol, a blue teddy bear with a plaster on its chest was designed to create a sudden consciousness in the minds of people about child sexual abuse.

With years of proven expertise at providing top quality lapel pins coupled with Breaking The Silence’s extensive and diligent research process, the team hopes that the "blue teddy bear with a plaster on its chest" symbol and lapel pins will become the generally accepted symbol and label pin for child sexual abuse and incest all around the world.
