February is Teen Dating Violence Prevention & Awareness Month
During the month of February, people throughout the country will be marking Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month with events, trainings and information. On twitter the hashtag #TDVAPM will highlight all of the actions being taken.
To start this month, I will be attending Peace Over Violence’s Violence Free Teens conference on February 4, 2011 in Los Angeles.
What activities are you planning to prevent teen dating violence?
