This February, we're building on our #1Thing message for Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month as we work to promote healthy dating relationships and support the collective action of young people for social change. We believe that each of us has a role to play in preventing dating violence, promoting gender and racial equity, and creating the world we wish to live in!

This February, NRCDV is highlighting the work of organizations that center young people and youth-driven initiatives.
#1Thing has taken Domestic Violence Awareness Month by storm. The unified messaging campaign, developed by NRCDV's Domestic Violence Awareness Project, has been adopted by advocates, agencies, universities, governments, businesses, advocates, law enforcement, students, hospitals, and so many more.
By encouraging people to do #1Thing for Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we acknowledge that everyone has a role to play, no matter how small, in our collective effort to transform our communities.
Domestic violence impacts millions of people each year, but it can be prevented. It requires the collective voice and power of individuals, families, institutions, and systems – each whose “one thing” adds a valuable and powerful component to transforming our communities.
