February is Black History Month, but did you know it is also National Teen Violence Awareness Month? Last year, to bring more attention to teen violence prevention, President Barack Obama released a proclamation declaring February to be National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month. Black and Missing Foundation, Inc. is just as devoted to helping parents and young people become more aware of teen violence and will do so through a special February spotlight called WatchOver Wednesdays.
Every Wednesday in February, we will use our blog and social media platform to share tips, profiles and other pertinent information about teen violence prevention. Our goal is to equip our readers to be more aware, to be able to detect the signs of teen violence, and to know how to respond if a teen in their life is being abused.
We hope you share the information we provide during WatchOver Wednesdays with every parent, guardian, educator and child advocate you may know.
