February is back and Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month is in full swing! Domestic and sexual violence can start at an early age and too many teens suffer because of it. Help spread the word about dating violence. Answers to questions such as, what is consent and what does a healthy relationship look like, are not always so clear to a lot of teens (and a lot of adults) out there. Get the facts and share them with friends and family. Teen dating violence is never acceptable.
Valentine’s day is meant to be a fun day of love, romance, and plenty of chocolate. Perhaps you plan to go out to a nice dinner with your significant other. Maybe the night’s plans involve an evening in, relaxing on the couch. Or maybe your plans are to go out hoping to meet someone new. Whatever your plans for this international day of love, remember CONSENT IS EVERYTHING!
What is Consent?
Sexual Violence is a personal violation of a person's body, rights and privacy. It violates a persons innermost physical, psychological and emotional being. The crime is all to common within families, neighborhoods and communities. It crosses all ethical, racial, religion, and socioeconomic boundaries.
