Teen DV Month (TDVAM) is a national effort to raise awareness about abuse in teen and 20-something relationships and promote programs that prevent it during the month of February.
Dating violence is more common than many people think. One in three teens in the U.S. will experience physical, sexual or emotional abuse by someone they are in a relationship with before they become adults. Help us spread awareness and stop dating abuse before it starts!
The theme for this year's Teen DV Month is LOVE is...RESPECT, what respect means and why it's so important in a healthy relationship.
The Putnam/Northern Westchester Women's Resource Center hopes you will join us in spreading the word and raising awareness by using the hashtag #teendvmonth.
Also, participate in Wear Orange Day on
February 12th. Post your pictures on social media using
Respect Week is February 11-15
