February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, a designation created by Congress in 2010. Throughout the month The Retreat offers a variety of programming in the community, schools, and with the Teen Leadership Project. Individual events can be found on our full events calendar.
If your school or organization is interested in participating in TDVAM, please contact Helen Atkinson-Barnes about ways to do so.
You can also show your support by wearing the color orange during the month and particularly on February 12th-Wear Orange Day. This is a national day of awareness for TDVAM. Share photos of yourself and others wearing orange, use the tag #Orange4Love and #AllAgainstAbuse.
