National Respect Announcement

One in three teens will experience dating violence and two-thirds of them will never report it. Abuse crosses all social, economic and ethnic boundaries, devastating a young person’s health and safety. Dating violence hurts victims, families, friends, schools and communities.

It's time to break the cycle.

Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month in February brings together organizations and individuals nationwide to highlight the need to educate young people about dating violence, teach healthy relationship skills and prevent the devastating cycle of abuse.

Join the National Youth Advisory Board for loveisrespect.org and thousands of other dating abuse advocates in our Thunderclap to spread the message to your social networks and help promote healthy relationships.

Additionally, you can take action on February 14 and read the National Respect Announcement across your school’s intercom, to your class, youth group or before meetings. You’ll be raising awareness of teen dating violence and the resources to end it.

Love has many definitions, but abuse isn't one of them.

If you or someone you know has a question about a relationship, healthy or unhealthy, visit loveisrespect.org or text "loveis" to 22522.
