"This Isn’t Love" Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Campaign

About the Campaign

This campaign consists primarily of "social media" and electronic distribution of the components. The intent of the campaign is to get teens thinking that some of the behaviors they may be experiencing or inflicting (possessiveness, jealousy) are not signs of love. They are signs of control and they are forms of abuse.

Activities for Schools and Communities

In addition to the web banner and poster, there are many other activities or programs that your school or organization could plan for Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month -- or any day, for that matter. This is a problem teens are experiencing 365 days out of the year.
