#YouthLeaders Twitter Chat Recap: Youth-Led Efforts to End Teen Dating Violence

On February 29, the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) co-hosted a Twitter chat on how young people are leading the charge to address violence and oppression in their communities. “Empowered Youth on the Margins: Activism in Action” was facilitated by the FYSB-funded National Resource Center on Domestic Violence as part of Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. Participants chatted about their efforts 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 (LGBTQ).

Here are some of the highlights of that chat. You can also view the entire conversation by checking out this recap.
