February is national Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month!

Did you know? Nearly 1 in 10 RI high schoolers has already experienced physical dating violence.

Fortunately, there is a law in Rhode Island that requires all middle schools and high schools to have a policy and teach everyone about the issue—it’s called the Lindsay Ann Burke Act.

Students, parents, and educators, it’s up to all of us to make sure this law is being implemented in our schools! This February, learn about the many ways you can take action in your community. Together, we can prevent dating violence.
