That’s Not Cool is a national public educational initiative to prevent teen dating abuse. Developed by the Family Violence Prevention Fund, in partnership with the Department of Justice‘s Office on Violence Against Women and the Advertising Council, That’s Not Cool focuses on preventing controlling or abusive behavior occurring within the digital universe – online, via cellphone, etc. – and encourages teens to draw their own lines about what is, or is not, acceptable relationship behavior. Since the January 2009 campaign launch, That’s Not Cool has engaged hundreds of thousands of teens in teen dating abuse prevention, both online and on-the-ground.
This web conference provided an overview of the campaign’s learning over the past year, and introduced a new Campaign Tools website that will help violence prevention activists and youth serving community leaders activate That’s Not Cool in local communities.
