February 8, 2018 Proclamation "Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month"
During their Feb. 8 regular meeting, Greene County Commissioners proclaimed the month of February 2018 Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month.
According to the proclamation, females between the ages of 16 and 24 are more vulnerable to intimate partner violence, experiencing abuse at a rate almost triple the national average. By providing young people with education about healthy relationships and by changing attitudes that support violence, dating violence can be prevented.
We want to educate teens on healthy relationships and red-flag relationships,” said Andrea Foster, prevention/education specialist for Domestic Violence Services of Southwestern Pennsylvania (DVSSP).
DVSSP will also host "One Billion Rising" at the Greene County Fairgrounds 4-H Building on Saturday, Feb. 17 from 10 a.m. to noon. The public is invited to the free dance and encouraged to wear something red, pink or black to show solidarity against exploitation of women.
For more information on teen dating violence awareness and prevention, call the Domestic Violence Services of Southwestern Pennsylvania’s Greene County satellite office at 724-852-2463.
