BLOOMINGTON – Annually, nearly 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner, and we need your support to help prevent and end teen dating violence! Tuesday, February 8th, is #WearOrangeDay, and Middle Way House is inviting the community to wear orange to show their support for survivors of teen dating violence and bring awareness to teen dating violence in our community.
Be sure to post a selfie with you, your friends, and/or co-workers on social media wearing orange and use the hashtag #WearOrangeDay and tag Middle Way House, @MiddleWayHouse, on Facebook, Instagram, and/or Twitter.
Teen dating violence affects youth of all genders, orientations, ages, races, ethnicities, cultures, classes, faiths, and abilities. Pledge to help prevent and end teen dating violence and text WearOrange to 44-321 to donate today!
