We strive to bring light to a commonly overlooked issue: teen dating violence. "Shades of Gray" refers to abusive behavior in relationships that are not always viewed by society as unhealthy. Subtle tactics and manipulative behavior to gain control over one's partner play a major role in modern day teen dating relationships. Our mission is to educate and advocate for victim rights.
During the Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, people around the nation participate in activities that promote education and awareness about teen dating abuse. This is a crucial time to talk openly about healthy and unhealthy relationships, warning signs and what we can do to lessen the frequency of dating abuse.
Why take an entire month talking about dating abuse?
