Thank you for commemorating teenDVmonth! There are so many ways that you can make a difference!
Help spread awareness by participating in the nationwide orange-out this February. Invite your friends to the Facebook event, post a picture of you sporting the color and blast your social media using the hashtags #TDVAM and #RESPECTWEEK.
Be part of a one million strong movement this Valentine’s Day. Read the National Announcement across your school’s intercom, to your class, Girl Scout troop, whatever! You’ll be raising awareness of teen dating violence and the resources to end it.
Local governments across the nation are participating in teenDVmonth. Make sure yours isn’t left out by writing your governor, mayor or school board member. Don’t worry we have everything you need to get started!
In February, reporters turn their attention to dating abuse in greater numbers than any other time of year. Help make sure their interest turns into pieces that engage and educate your community.
You don’t need an elected official or reporter to make a difference. You can host an event, big or small, that educates your family, friends and classmates about dating abuse and building healthy relationships.
