Break the Cycle releases the 2009 State-by-State Teen Dating Violence Report Card grading each state’s laws on how well they protect teen victims of dating violence.
The report has already received wide media attention.
Dear Friends, The recent incident involving pop stars Chris Brown and Rihanna is flooding the news, bringing the shocking reality of teen dating violence to the nation’s attention. Much of the coverage focuses on the graphic details, feeding misconceptions about abuse without offering resources for help.
Break the Cycle is happy to announce that The Ahmanson Foundation has generously donated $40,000 to support dating violence prevention. Their gift will increase agency productivity and help us connect thousands more youth with appropriate and effective resources. We thank them for the support.
Along with Break the Cycle, Mary Kay Inc. will encourage legislators across the United States to propose laws requiring healthy relationship education in schools.

Break the Cycle is pleased to publish our 2007 Annual Report, documenting the year's accomplishments and milestones. Completing a new strategic plan in 2007, we identified and made strides towards accomplishing the six goals most important to furthering our mission:
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Break the Cycle has launched several initiatives to celebrate.
Through our campaign Speak.Act.Change, we are calling on high school students nationwide to secure their schools and their futures.
This month, we also published the graphic novel He Loves Me... He Loves Me Not/Me ama... no me ama, to help Latino teens learn more about dating violence and the resources available.
This year's Savor the Season was a huge success! The event raised more funds than ever before to support Break the Cycle’s life-saving work with youth.
Guests enjoyed food and beverages from some of Los Angeles’ top culinary talents and also sampled decadent chocolates, champagne, and much more!
We thank everyone who helped with or attended the event and look forward to seeing you at Savor the Season 2009!
