Dating violence awareness month 2016

24-Jan-2020 01:15

A study by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence found that 32% of college students report having experienced dating violence by a previous partner.

In light of these alarming facts, every year during the month of February advocates join efforts to raise awareness about dating violence, highlight promising practices, and encourage communities to get involved as part of Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.

May 24 and 25, at 7pm Level Up: An Epic Relationship Adventure, tracks the journey of 4 teens who find one another and “create a new game” to escape their problems.

Through the framework of video games the characters find the skills they need to navigate challenges in their lives and relationships: Alex overcomes their extreme anxiety to find a community of supportive friends; Ray learns how to ask for help to seek safety from domestic violence threatening his home; Jade finds her voice to stand up to her girlfriend’s pressure to come out to her dad; and Zara discovers how to navigate the complexity of maintaining her Muslim heritage while embracing her identity as an American teenager.

We are collecting items such as toiletries (could be hotel or travel size), socks, hair products, children’s art supplies (coloring books, crayons, scissors), baby items (bottles, bibs, washcloths, diapers), toothbrushes, notebooks, towels, and cooking utensils.

You may drop off your donations to the CARE office at G320 Student Center.
