Meet Tory

btc intern ToryMy name is Tory and I am policy intern at Break the Cycle.

Even though I just started working in January, I have already worked on a lot of interesting stuff ranging from writing opinion editorials for political blogs to organizing grass roots campaigns on college campuses.

While I have worked on several interesting projects, the work I have done for Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month this February have been my favorite!

On the first day of February, I went to the Congress buildings alongside another intern, Stevie, to start creating awareness on Capitol Hill. We spoke to every member of Congress about teenDVmonth, gave them fliers to educate themselves and staff about the scope of the issue and even gave them pins to wear so they could show their support all month long.

Talking to members of the congressional offices was such a rewarding experience because I actually felt like I was creating change. This inspired me to get more involved and talk to people about teenDVmonth at the grass roots level.

The media offers us little in the way of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning (LGBTQ) relationship diversity or models of healthy and satisfying LGBTQ relationships. Sadly, with this invisibility often comes the assumption that such relationships cannot or do not include dating abuse and interpersonal violence, as well.
