February is Dating Violence Awareness Month

February is Dating Violence Awareness Month, a national effort to raise awareness about the impacts of dating abuse and encourage communities to support teens and young adults in seeking healthy relationships. Though these conversations are important to have year-round, February gives us the opportunity to shine a light on dating abuse and inspire conversations about healthy relationships in order to stop violence before it starts.

We Must be Anti-Racist

HCWC stands in solidarity with people of color to hold accountable systems and individuals who continue to use violence and abuse to value some lives over others. We have long recognized that domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, and racism are intricately linked.

Speak Your Truth. Break the Silence.

We are offering a place for the community to anonymously submit their works for us to share with our supporters. Your story, poetry, art, or advice to your younger self could make a huge difference in the life of someone experiencing abuse, and could even be the motivation they need to reach out for help or to process the emotions they feel from the abuse.
