The Voices of Teen Violence

“I was used to him texting me fifty times a day, and always wanting to know where I was and who I was with. I didn’t realize that was emotional abuse. He shoved me a few times, but I guess I always thought that since he didn’t hit me, he was a good guy.”

“She told me that it was my fault she was so mad. That if I loved her, I’d hang out with her instead of meeting up with my friends. It’s like nothing I did was ever right.”

“Most young people don’t realize that there is help available. You don’t have to be an adult to talk to an advocate, call the police, or get an order of protection. We can help them through this; they don’t have to be alone.”
