Sign the pledge!
Take a stand during Domestic Violence Awareness Month by signing our pledge against violence.
Thank you for joining us on October 3 for the launch of the 2018 Campaign – “Students for Safer Relationships.”
This Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we are illuminating the prevalence of teen dating violence and calling on young people to break the cycle of violence by pursuing healthy relationships.
On October 3, hundreds of educators, lawmakers, survivors, and community members came together for the launch of the 2018 iPledge® Campaign -“Students for Safer Relationships.” We were honored to have relationship therapist and national television & radio personality Dr. Argie Allen Wilson as our event MC, and we presented the 2018 Pat Fox Trailblazer Award to Sara Schwartz, Director of Social Services at CB Community School, and Stephanie Contreras, Resilience Specialist at El Centro de Estudiantes.
We were moved by the stories and affirmations of our speakers, a line-up that included Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, our Executive Director and President Jeannine Lisitski, and our friend Trevor Schmanek, whose experiences witnessing domestic violence as a child have shaped his perspective on relationships.
Teens from Women Against Abuse’s SAFER® (Safety Awareness For Every Relationship) teen dating violence prevention program created this teen-centric pledge against violence!
