You’ll be raising awareness of teen dating violence and the resources to end it. You can also spread the word by joining our Thunderclap and sending out the National Respect Announcement to all your social media networks.

You can also participate in the National Respect Announcement by copying the text below and posting it online using #RespectWeek2015 or by posting the National Respect Announcement flyer included in the Respect Week Guide around campus, on your dorm message board or health office. Help send a message that love has many definitions, but abuse isn't one of them!

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we’d like to remind you that everyone deserves a safe and healthy relationship. If you or someone you know has a question about a relationship, healthy or unhealthy, visit or text "loveis" to 22522.

Remember, love has many definitions, but abuse isn't one of them.
