Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence


Prevention Work

Imagine a world where
…boys and girls know that they are loved and how to love,
…gender doesn’t define how we treat each other, and
…everyone experiences healthy, loving, and safe relationships.

We all have a role to play in creating this world and ending domestic violence.

In a recent study most teens said they know what a healthy relationship is, but they don’t expect to be in one. Wow.Prevention Definition

How can we change that?
