TAMPA - Watch our Taking Action Against Domestic Violence special presentation Oct. 16 at 7 p.m. on ABC Action News - WFTS/TV or online on ABC Action News Now at www.abcactionnews.com .
This year we are focusing on teen dating and creative educational programs we found in the Tampa Bay area that are helping to steer teenagers away from unhealthy relationships.
It will change the way you think about checklists, texting, and drama on stage!
We're also bringing you messages directly from children, now adults, who grew up in homes with domestic violence. What happened to them? What's their message today?
We encourage you to watch our 5 th Annual Taking Action Against Domestic Violence – Special Presentation & find out.
Since the launch of the campaign five years ago, the Florida Coalition Against DV has reported a 77% increase in calls to the DV hotline during the 6 weeks of the 2009 – 2012 Taking Action Against Domestic Violence campaigns.
We will be hosting a phone bank from 5 to 6 p.m. in conjunction with our domestic violence special. We will have experts on hand to answer questions about teen dating abuse, teen dating classes, and about the educational programs available in your county. To participate call 1-888-209-8881.
We are also hosting a live web chat at www.abcactionnews.com/dv.
You can also join the conversation on Twitter by using #TAADV and by following us at @ActionAgainstDV or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/TAADV .
