Inviting all teens to the Breaking the Silence event, with the goals of; ~ Raising awareness about sexual assault and teen dating violence ~ Educating young people about dating and healthy relationships
With One Safe Place, the new Family Justice Center in North County, serving hundreds of victims since its opening last year, the need to educate teens and help break the cycle of sexual and dating abuse has become increasingly important.
Many teens have already been exposed to violence, either directly by a dating partner or indirectly by witnessing family members being abused. We can’t hide this problem; therefore, we must talk about it.
We believe youth can help us reach more youth. As we hear from them and get them engaged for future events, we hope that they will be able to take the lead to help others
