#ThisIsDV #TeenDVMonth (Social Media Campaign)

Hosted by: National Resource Center on Domestic Violence

About:

What does teen dating violence look like? Recognizing the tactics used to hurt, intimidate, frighten, and control young people in intimate relationships is critical if we are to take action to address and prevent it. The NRCDV’s #ThisIsDV campaign elevates the voices of youth survivors during Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month to help validate and name their experiences and raise awareness about the multifaceted nature of teen dating violence.

Movie Screening at Day One NY

Movie Screening at Day One NY

Hosted by: Day One NY

About:

Throughout the month of Feburary Day One plans on raising awareness to the types of abusive and unhealthy relationships teens often see in the media. We will be hosting screenings throughout all of New York City of movies featuring teen relationships, to high school students. After the film, there will be a talk back where Day One coordinators will start a discussion with the students about how relationships are portrayed in the media. Since we have coordinators placed in seven high schools in New York City, there will be a screening held in each of those schools along with one held in our office in lower Manhattan. 

Where:

New York, NY 10007
