District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro on Friday (April 5) commemorated Louisiana child abuse victims at the 14th annual Trees for Life ceremony at the New Orleans Children’s Advocacy Center.

Trees for Life is a program that distributes trees to plant in memory of each Louisiana child who died in the past year as a result of abuse.

“With each beautiful tree planted and each blue ribbon tied, we assure that its associated victim will be remembered in a positive, life-affirming way,” Cannizzaro said. “And with each new tree and ribbon, we resolve to redoubling our efforts on behalf of vulnerable children in the months ahead. We renew our pledges to do all we can to ensure there are fewer commemorative trees to plant next year.”
