Safe Space Advocates Spread Awareness for Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

Categories: Domestic Violence

Safe Space advocates were in the community during the month of February conducting outreach and awareness activities to acknowledge Teen Dating Violence Awareness month.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When we think of dating violence, sometimes we do not think of our children, but it’s time that we start!

One in three teens experience some form of dating violence whether its, physical, emotional, sexual, or verbal.

In February Safe Space spent time visiting the high schools and middle schools of Franklin County, passing out information and talking to your teens about dating relationships.

Just because February has passed doesn’t mean we should stop talking about the subject. 

We should all be a part of the movement to stop dating violence in our community.

Talk with your teens, ask the tough questions, and pay attention to what they’re doing.

These are our children and our future and they deserve a life without violence.

If you have any questions about dating violence, if your teen or someone you know is experiencing dating violence our advocates are here to assist you 24 hours a day.

Call our hotline at 1-800-620-6120 or 919-497-5599.

We all have a seat at the table of prevention and together we can make a difference.
