Dating Violence Resources

Do you have a teen (or tween, or college-age) daughter? Do you know young women? Here's some great resources for them:

Lindsay Ann Burke was murdered by her boyfriend. Her family began a memorial fund, and their website is awesome in the resources it contains for young women and their families. Visit them at http://www.labmf.org today.

Ann Burke (Lindsay's mom) has become a tireless advocate for young women and against abusive relationships. She's helped form a national coalition (sponsored in part by Liz Claiborne Inc. and Redbook Magazine) to advocate for all middle and high schools to teach a curriculum about preventing dating relationship violence and abuse. Read their press release at http://www.loveisnotabuse.com/pressreleases.htm.

Are there teen girls in your life? Please don't wait until someone you care about is killed. What can you do to create a safe environment in case one of them needs help?
