Community Forum on Healthy Relationships in a Social Movements will take place on Feb.
The New York State Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence (OPDV) is pleased to offer the following ideas and resources for schools and communities to raise awareness of Teen Dating Violence.
Dating violence knows no boundaries and does not discriminate.
Nowadays relationships are not ending with “And they lived happily ever after” like in Cinderella or Snow White.
In fact, dating violence has increased 40 percent since 1999, according to the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
To join the effort, the East Los Angeles Women’s Center (ELAWC) has partnered with local organizations to host informational events in Boyle Heights about what makes a healthy relationship.
Through a community forum at Casa 0101 Theatre and a resource fair at Corazon Del Pueblo, ELAWC will offer participants a chance to discuss teen dating violence, share their stories and talk about love and relationships.
