Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

#TDVAM

For years, young people across the nation have organized to put a stop to dating abuse. With their adult allies, they achieved a major victory in 2005 when the importance of addressing teen dating abuse was highlighted in the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.

The following year, Congress followed the lead of dozens of national, state and local organizations in sounding the call to end dating abuse. Both Chambers declared the first full week in February “National Teen Dating Violence Prevention and Awareness Week.” Then in 2010, they began dedicating the entire month of February to teen dating violence awareness and prevention.

National Stalking Awareness Month

#NSAM

Held each year in January, NSAM shines the spotlight on the complex issue of stalking that occurs in our communities. Every year 7.5 million people are stalked in the United States. Please visit the  NSAM official website to learn more.
