Rosenbluth will be speaking at our National Conference on Health and Domestic Violence next month!
National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month is in full swing and for many communities that means local proclamations, student assemblies, and youth-led campaigns to raise awareness of this important issue.
In 2010 the week became a month, expanding opportunities to reach more people in new ways.
The following year, both houses of Congress declared the first full week in February as National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Week.Throughout the month of February, there will be several Federal awareness events taking place to highlight the issue of teen dating violence, such as webinars or conference calls.For a helpful introduction to the issue of teen dating violence, including how to prevent and respond to teen dating violence, visit VAWnet.org, the National Online Resource Center on Violence Against Women, supported by the Family Violence Prevention and Services Program.A Thin Line Empowering youth to stop the spread of digital abuse.Technology Safety Planning with Survivors Help young survivors of teen dating violence make safer decisions online with safety planning tips sheets from the National Network to End Domestic Violence.
