Wear Orange February 11

Download the Respect Week 2013 Guide Wear something (shirts, nail polish, jewelry, shoes, ribbons, hair ties, braces or anything else you can think of) orange in honor of teenDVmonth. And don’t just wear it, talk about it! Tell everyone why you are wearing orange. Try saying something like: “I’m wearing orange today to promote respect and healthy relationships!”

Have an orange outfit in mind? Next, help us spread the word by telling everyone and posting pictures of you and your friends wearing orange on facebook.com/loveisrespect and @loveisrespect.

National Announcement February 14

What better way to say Happy Valentine’s Day than helping your entire school learn about healthy relationships? On February 14, you can sign up to read the 3rd Annual National Announcement to Promote Healthy Relationships over your school’s intercom or throughout the day before each of your classes.

Host a Respect Week Event

Take the lead on educating your community by hosting your own event. The NYAB prepared tip sheets on staffing an info table and organizing a candlelight vigil to get you started.

Ready to take action? Post your event on the official website for the month teendvmonth.org and tweet us @loveisrespect with hashtag #RespectWeek.
