There are many activities planned throughout this month to commemorate #teen DVmonth, including web-based events from the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence, loveisrespect, and Break the Cycle.VAWnet has a recently updated special collection on teen dating violence and is a great source for materials and research.I want to share the information I have learned about teen dating violence with everyone, especially my friends in relationships.Did you know February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month? I was too focused on February 14th, that special day when we all celebrate love by treating our partners to candlelit dinners, chocolate, and roses.It’s easy to forget that not every couple who uploads a cute photo to Facebook has a healthy relationship.Is Valentine’s Day the only day you and your partner celebrate your relationship?
Is your partner pressuring you to have sex to prove you love them? Loveisrespect has provided a few quizzes to help you figure out how healthy your relationship is and how it could be better.
As part of Raliance, Prevent Connect/CALCASA and national partners are convening the This GEN: Youth Summit in March.
The summit will elevate the voices of student activists working to end gender-based violence and will be student-led from beginning to end.
Valentines Day seems like a hard day to consider intimate partner violence but it is actually the best day because true love is kind, respectful, and never abusive.
Red might be the usual color for Valentines Day but perhaps consider wearing orange this year to show your support!
