Respect Week 2014 is just around the corner! As part of Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month, Respect Week (Monday, February 10th through Friday, 14th) is just one of the many ways you can get involved during February. From what you wear to writing your mayor, governor or pastor, here are just a few of the ways you can help spread awareness of teen dating violence:
- On Valentine’s Day, read the National Respect Announcement across your school’s intercom, to your class, youth group or wherever fits best. You’ll raise awareness of teen dating violence and how to end it. You can also spread the word by joining our Thunderclap and sending out the National Respect Announcement to all your social media networks
- Wear orange and be part of the nationwide orange-out on Tuesday, February 11. Whether it’s a little orange or a lot, it’ll help spread awareness of dating violence. Invite your friends to the Facebook event, post a picture and blast your social media using the hashtags #teenDVmonth and #RespectWeek2014
- Register for the toolkit and get access to resources during Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month that will help you, your school, groups, communities and more raise awareness
- Get a proclamation from your local leaders in government, education, faith organizations and more so they can participate in teenDVmonth
- Host an event where you can educate your family, friends and classmates about how dating abuse affects one in three teens
