For Teen Dating Violence and Awareness month, we held a seminar to educate local teens about the symptoms of domestic violence and what healthy and unhealthy behaviors look like. Our guest speakers this year included representatives from Dallas Area Rape Crisis Center (darcc) and Planned Parenthood.
Below are some quotes from teens who attended the event:
"I learned that it is never okay for someone to control you or make you fell less than what you are."
"You can't make people your slave and communication is key."
"I learned that it's okay to be free in your relationship."
"Today I learned that isolation is a key part of an unhealthy relationship."
