Texas Teens Learn About Healthy Relationships

Texas Teens Learn About Healthy Relationships

On Friday, Dec. 5, members of the loveisrespect team attended a Healthy Relationships Rally at Creekview High School in Carrollton, TX. The focus of the rally was on healthy dating and learning the signs of digital abuse. We were joined by our friends from Mary Kay and Verizon, as well as Texas Senator Jane Nelson, all of whom spoke on the importance of respect, both online and off, in healthy relationships.

Below are a few pictures from the event. We want to thank Principal Joe LaPuma and the wonderful staff and students of Creekview for welcoming us into their school!
