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.

1 in 3 young people will experience physical, sexual, or emotional abuse by someone they are in a relationship with.

Make sure to follow us on social media and follow the hashtags #StopTheHurt and #WhatAboutLove
