How can you make a difference? By encouraging your school, community-based organizations, tribal leaders, parents, and teens to join together to prevent teen dating violence— both at home and in our communities. The NativeLove project provides opportunities for our young people to discuss teen dating violence and related issues to reframe what Native Love is… including ways to transform our thoughts and actions to restore how we love, honor, and treat one another. Our goal is to inspire, empower, and mobilize tribal youth to amplify their voices to advocate against violence against Native women, youth, and children with the aim of creating positive social change in our communities.
February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness month, and each year SYLC runs a media campaign to help educate teens in Sitka about dating violence, the signs, and the resources that are available to teens. This campaign aims to increase awareness of dating violence and promote healthy relationships among teens. SYLC believes a healthy relationship starts with a healthy me. We are also very happy to announce the release of our new materials as part of this campaign!
