It’s Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month is an opportunity to honor and recognize all those who have been impacted by dating violence and all gender-based violence. This February, the Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence (OPDV) is continuing our Start the Conversation: Engaging Men & Boys public awareness campaign with a focus on technology-facilitated abuse. All our campaigns and materials will focus on these topics, and we encourage your organizations to as well. Throughout the month, we invite you to post social media graphics with resources, wear orange on #WearOrangeDay, and join New York State in being an ally this February, and all year long!
