2021 Theme “Know Your Worth”
This year’s theme Know Your Worth is all about learning about healthy relationships and self-empowerment, and was chosen by college students from across the country. You are worth respect and deserving of a healthy, loving relationship. Our idea with this theme is to empower our audience to learn more about healthy relationships, and to know what they are worth and what they deserve. It is a very powerful, personal statement that guides actions, behaviors, and communication in relationships to be healthy and free from violence. Everyone is deserving of a healthy relationship!

Dating violence is more common than many people think. One in three teens in the U.S. will experience physical, sexual or emotional abuse by someone they are in a relationship with before they become adults.
We need your help to spread awareness about dating abuse and let everyone know they deserve a safe and healthy relationship.
