Today we’re kicking off Respect Week 2016! During this special week, my fellow board members and I are encouraging young people across the country to get involved, raise awareness about dating violence and promote healthy relationships. Our Respect Week guide offers step-by-step instructions and ideas for raising awareness in your community. You can reference the guide to decide which ideas are best for your school or campus, and you can tailor activities to your own needs and time constraints. Some activities require a lot of planning, but others can be done really easily and still have a huge impact!
