In recognition of Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (TDVAM), the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the National Domestic Violence Hotline will host an expert panel featuring representatives from loveisrespect. Panelists will announce the 2019 TDVAM campaign, Huddle Up for Healthy Relationships and debrief guests about current dating trends among America’s youth and resources available to those affected by dating abuse. The goal is to ignite conversation about the issue that affects 1 in 3 high school students in America today. Media, advocates, elected leaders, parents, law enforcement officials, educators, and anyone who has a stake in helping young people stay safe in their relationships is invited to attend.
During the webinar, guests will also learn about activities, statistics, and tools available online to educate young people and parents about healthy vs. unhealthy relationships. loveisrespect has developed a toolkit filled with information that is easily shareable on social media, at school, and with media throughout the month. February 11-15 is Respect Week with a focus on what it means to set healthy boundaries in a relationship. Participants in TDVAM are encouraged to #wearorange4love on Wear Orange Day February 12, write blogs, participate in polls, and share smartphone videos describing “what a healthy relationship looks like to me.”
Please make plans to join the State of Dating Violence: Huddle Up for Healthy Relationships webinar and help raise awareness about dating abuse.
