We’re closing out the final week of Teen DV Month, and we just want to say THANK YOU again to everyone who participated and helped raise awareness during February. We’ve loved having conversations about these important topics. But don’t stop just because February is over! Teen dating violence is a problem all year round, so please keep talking, keep learning, and keep working to end dating abuse. Remember, we’re here for you 24/7 if you ever need support.
