NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim February 2015 as National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month.
This month, we join with all those who have endured the pain of an unhealthy relationship and acknowledge the responsibility we each have to end this cycle of fear, isolation, and abuse.
Dating violence often involves the use of inappropriate actions to control a partner or resolve conflicts.
Help us celebrate healthy relationships and join us in taking action to help spread awareness and prevent dating violence!
Here’s how you can help: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more updates -- we’ll be hosting in Los Angeles, CA and Washington, DC -- and tell your family and friends that everyone deserves a healthy and respectful relationship!
