Teen DV Month
The 2019 Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month theme is here!
Your Love is Unique ... with Consent a reminder that each relationship has it's individual traits, and everyone deserves to have their boundaries respected!
It's a national effort carried on by activists, community leaders, and national and local organizations, to raise awareness about dating abuse, promote programs that support young people, and encourage communities to prevent this form of abuse with the goal of decreasing the prevalence of dating abuse among young people.
Teen DV Month has always been driven by young people, and this year was no different. The activists in Let's Be Real, Break the Cycle's youth movement, wanted a theme that spoke to the importance of the differences in relationships, young love, and boundaries. Members expressed that, your first loves sets you up for the rest of your life, and it's how you learn to define relationships. The members of Let's Be Real want the 2019 Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month theme to remind each and every one of you that your love is unique and you deserve to have your boundaries respected. When we all come together to share our "uniqueness" we can truly learn to work together to create healthy relationships - no matter how young you are!
Shout out to Zachary and Let's Be Real members for their input! Read the full story of how they developed the theme on our blog!
