"No Excuse for Dating Abuse" Self-Expression Teen Summit

Thursday, February 8, 2018

Join the Department of Parks and Recreation in a national effort to protect and educate young people about dating violence. According to the Centers for Disease Control, unhealthy relationships can start early and last a lifetime – which is why prevention and early intervention is critical.

During this ‘No Excuse for Dating Abuse’ event, teens will have a panel discussion with courageous conversations confronting issues of dating violence head-on and calling on the community for support and action. Additionally, there will be a visual arts and poetry contest, interactive visual arts expressions, live band, refreshments, giveaways, and photo shoots. Bring a friend and don't miss this very important topic!

Ages: 11 - 21
