Superior, WI (February, 2017) – To recognize Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, the Council On Child Protection and the Douglas County Coordinated Community Response (CCR) Team for Sexual Assault will collaborate with community partners throughout February to highlight a message of non-violence, and to share information about local services for victims of abuse. An opening ceremony, featuring a School District Proclamation, will take place Wednesday, February 15th, at 8:00 a.m. in the Performing Arts Center of the Superior High School.
Members of the public are encouraged to attend the kickoff event, which takes place at 2600 Catlin Ave. in Superior. Speakers include Superior School District Superintendent, Janna Stevens, and CASDA Children’s Program Coordinator, Nicole Nemec.
The event will also include a chance for all guests to kick off Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. Our hope is that the proclamation about this serious issue will spark conversations throughout our community and will help inspire parents to have this important discussion about preventing dating violence, supporting victims, and holding perpetrators accountable!
Additional February activities include:
- A “Teen Dating Violence” in-service presentation for our local educators to be held February 14th, 2017.
- The “Hearts on Your Sleeve Campaign” that will be ongoing at the Superior High School during lunch the week of February 20th through the 24th.
- Rolling over into March there will be an additional presentation about Teen Dating Violence given to the senior class with the exact date to be determined. (Freshmen already received a similar presentation earlier in the school year during their Keystone classes.)
