In a recent study most teens said they know what a healthy relationship is, but they don’t expect to be in one. Wow.
We can change that.
Imagine a world where:
- boys and girls know that they are loved and how to love,
- gender doesn’t define how we treat each other, and
- everyone experiences healthy, loving, and safe relationships.
We all have a role to play in creating this world and ending domestic violence.
