New Teen Center!

We recently launched a new website that adapts to mobile devices to make it more user-friendly.

As part of Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month, we created the
Teen Center, an extension of our main site designed specifically for young people.

Use the site to learn about abusive vs. healthy relationships, where to get help, or how to help a friend.

When you Know More, you can Do More.

Dating Violence?

For our February campaign, we focused on helping young people know what abuse looks like so that they know when and how to support those experiencing dating violence.

Through our radio PSA, video, posters, and website, we told the story of a group of friends who stepped in to help someone in an abusive relationship.

The primary prevention of domestic violence aims to create social change. We are working to cultivate individuals and communities that do not tolerate violence and support healthy relationships and gender equality.

To achieve this peaceful vision for the future, we must shift deeply ingrained attitudes, beliefs and behaviors that contribute to domestic violence. You can help! Together we can prevent dating and domestic violence. Know More.
