Kentucky teen dating sites

February flies by even quicker than normal when you’re as busy as we’ve been! We hosted two #Preventin It tweet chats in February, where people from our community and beyond logged onto Twitter to share their thoughts on dating violence and how we can prevent it.If you missed the Tweet Chats, you can check out the recaps here.

With his support, we encouraged everyone to have a conversation with a teen about healthy relationships that day.We kept the conversation going by playing our #Preventin It Public Service Announcement on radio stations throughout the city.If you haven’t seen or heard our PSAs yet, check out this video version: We hosted a Conversation Café at Ujima Neighborhood Place and had teens and adults join us for an important community conversation about dating violence.We heard about how often teens in our community see dating violence, what support they need from teens, and how teens and adults can work together to end the violence.We were also able to join the ACLU of Kentucky for Youth Rally Day at the Capitol in Frankfort.We used this as an opportunity to talk with one of our legislators, Rep.

Reginald Meeks, about House Bill 8, which would extend civil protection to victims of dating violence.

(Kentucky law currently only protects couples who are or have been married, live together, or have children in common.) We finished off the month by joining The Louisville Metro Coalition to Prevent Teen Dating Violence for a walk through part of downtown Louisville in support of House Bill 8.

With a group of about 25 teens and young adults, we marched around City Hall, carried signs, and chanted to draw attention to the need for Kentucky legislators to pass this bill and support healthy relationships!

These activities and our regular programming and Youth Advisory Board meetings kept us very busy last month!

We had a lot of fun and gained even more community input and support in the process.

We can’t end violence without the help and support of our community – thanks for reading and joining us as we make our neighborhoods safer for teens!
