National teen dating violence awareness week
Clearly, the crime of teen dating violence, including physical, emotional and sexual assault, is a reality for many American teenagers.
Like drug abuse, it's a reality of which many parents are unaware.
Dear Colleague: Did you know that one in three female teens in a dating relationship report having feared for their safety?
Did you know that one in two teens in a serious relationship have compromised their beliefs to please their partner?
We will be introducing a resolution calling for February 5 - 9, 2007, to be designated "National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Week." As it did last year, the resolution will call on government representatives and agencies, private organizations and public officials to promote activities in their respective communities that raise awareness of the high incidence of teen dating violence that occurs among our teens avery day, as well as prevention strategies.
Did you know that 29 percent of girls in a relationship report having been pressured to have sex or engage in sex they did not want?
If you have questions or need more information, please contact Laura Thurston Goodroe in Senator Crapo's office.
