February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month!

We believe violence is preventable through ongoing conversation and education on healthy relationships.

How did National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month come to be?

In 2005, the importance of addressing teen dating abuse was highlighted in the re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act. The following year, both houses of Congress declared the first full week in February as National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Week. In 2010, the week became a month - TDVAM!
