February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month (TDVAPM)!

This month, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our Love Is Not Control campaign focusing on teen dating violence prevention and promoting healthy relationships in teens and young adults. The campaign, developed with local youth organization PrYSM (Providence Youth Student Movement) and our partners Center for Southeast Asians, Providence Public School District, Sojourner House, and Youth Pride, Inc., was made possible thanks to the Office on Violence Against Women.
