January 2020 Newsletter: #TeenDVMonth

Wednesday, January 22, 2020

February 2020 is almost here and we are celebrating 10 years of awareness efforts to end and prevent teen dating violence. Each year, approximately 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner. In addition, a survey of 500 teen and young adults, 57% percent waited six months or more before seeking any help while 40% hadn’t talked to anyone about abusive behavior in their relationship.

Because we know that Awareness + Action = Social Change, the Domestic Violence Awareness Project is excited to echo our partner organizations’ calls for social transformation this #TeenDVMonth. Break the Cycle’s Outrage to Action #TDVAM2020 campaign challenges each of us to do our part to end teen dating violence; it’s been 10 years of awareness, enough is enough, it’s time for real action.

When we work together and each do #1Thing to prevent teen dating violence and foster healthy relationships and communities, real social change is possible.
