Register for the National Respect Announcement

Be part of a one million strong movement this Valentine’s Day! Read the National Respect Announcement across your school’s intercom, to your class, youth group, whatever! You’ll be raising awareness of teen dating violence and the resources to end it.

On February 13th, we encourage you to read the following statement out loud – on your P.A. system, to your class or before group meetings.

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.

Together, we can put an end to Teen Dating Violence once and for all.
