LOVE IS RESPECT
January 14, 2014
Did you know that one in three teens experience some kind of dating violence? Yes, that’s one third, 33% of our kids. This dating violence reverberates through a community, hurting the victims and their families, friends, schools and communities. Recognizing that we must take action to stop this abuse, the US Congress declared the first full week in February as Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month.
Please join Congress and others across the nation taking steps to address this serious issue. Do you know a teen in trouble? Do you want to make sure your kids are aware of this dating risk? Learn more, watch the videos below and check out Teen DV Month.
