February 10-14, 2020 — Respect Week

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (TDVAM) – a national effort to raise awareness about abuse in teen relationships and promote programs that prevent it.

On Monday, February 10th, schools across the nation will be reading the National Respect Announcement.

Want to participate?

In Person: Use the following statement in your school video or PA announcements on the 10th, and let your students/peers know that dating violence is unacceptable and won’t be tolerated at your school.

On Social Media: Us the following statement and make your own post (or find lovisrespect or WCA and repost).

Respect Announcement:

“This month is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. 1 in 3 teens will experience some form of dating abuse. Everyone deserves a safe and healthy relationship. It’s time to take action, talk to a friend in need, and share resources. If you or someone you know has a question about your relationship or a friend’s relationship, visit loveisrespect.org or text “loveis” to 22522.”

Everyone has the right to a safe and healthy relationship. However, one in three teens in the U.S. will experience physical, sexual or emotional abuse by someone they are in a relationship with before they turn 18, and two thirds of them never tell anyone. Help us spread awareness and stop dating abuse before it starts!Remember, love has many definitions, but abuse isn’t one of them. I hope you’ll join the conversation!

Contact the Tracy Darling-DeMarcus, WCA Prevention Program Manager for more information about teen dating violence awareness or visit loveisrespect.org for more ways to participate in TDVAM. Also, check out the loveisrespect.org 2020 Respect Week Guide for some more great information.
