In recognition of Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence will facilitate a Twitter chat on youth-led efforts to address the overlap between violence and oppression, or the process of being controlled and silenced.
The Family and Youth Services Bureau, which funds the center, will co-host the February 29 chat, along with a number of partners committed to ending teen dating violence. Participants will learn about partnerships created to tear down systems that encourage dating violence against vulnerable youth, including those who are minority, low-income, runaway or homeless, or lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning.
Youth leaders will also share their work to end dating violence in their communities, including descriptions of special initiatives and lessons learned.
When: February 29, 2016, at 7 p.m. EST
Who (Co-Hosts): The National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (@NationalDVAM) and a number of co-hosts, including:
