February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month.
, just over a week after he had been officially inducted into office for a second term, President Barack Obama made a direct address, endorsing February as National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month.
February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month (Teen DV Month), a national effort to raise awareness about abuse in teen and 20-something relationships and promote programs that prevent it, and YOU have the power to help!
We’ll kick off Teen DVMonth tomorrow, February 4th, with It’s Time to Talk Day.
Hosted by Break the Cycle’s Love Is Not Abuse Campaign, It’s Time To Talk Day is an annual awareness day that aims to generate conversations about healthy relationships and prevent teen dating violence and abuse. Another great way to get involved this month is to participate in Respect Week, February 10-14, hosted by the loveisrespect National Youth Advisory Board (NYAB).
Check out the loveisrespect website for more information and to download the NYAB’s Respect Week 2014 Guide. Want to know how to help a young person experiencing abuse?
