"We will create the world we want to see and
move forward with courageous love and mutual
responsibility.
We are all part of this story.

– We Choose All of Us

This February, we're building on our #1Thing message for Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month as we work to promote healthy dating relationships and support the collective action of young people for social change. We believe that each of us has a role to play in preventing dating violence, promoting gender and racial equity, and creating the world we wish to live in!

This issue of the PreventIPV newsletter lifts up youth-driven prevention initiatives that embrace the #1Thing framework by promoting simple steps that people of all ages can take to promote positive relationship norms and healthy communities.

Our first story, Engaging Youth in IPV Prevention, will highlight programs focused on building youth’s leadership skills, engaging young people in shifting norms related to violence, and strengthening community-level protective factors for Intimate Partner Violence (IPV).

TA QUESTION OF THE MONTH

How can we create meaningful connections with youth leaders seeking opportunities to become vocal advocates for themselves and their communities?

In this TAQ, Rebecca Balog and Tanae LeClaire from the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center's NativeLove project share ways to foster connections between adult advocates and youth activists, particularly in Native communities.
