Loveisrespect.org is an organization committed to “engage, educate, and empower” teens and young people to prevent dating violence. They offer referrals for those who are being abused, answer questions for friends, family, and co-workers of the abused, and even offer advise for abusers who want to change.
They provide practical answers for youth about dating and on how to have healthy relationships. Moreover, they can locate legal advocates who can help victims of dating violence.
Teens and young adults can call a trained peer advocate to ask questions about healthy dating, to check in with an advocate about their relationship, or to raise a red flag about abuse.
