The YWCA of Brooklyn partnered with The Healing Center and others for the NYC Teen Dating Violence Awareness Walkathon on Saturday, April 18, 2015. The Walkathon began at Cadman Plaza Park North via the Brooklyn Bridge.
Statistics show that 1 in 4 teens will experience teen dating violence. This issue does not discriminate in gender, sexual identities, ethnicity, culture, faith, or socio-economic standing. The YWCA of Brooklyn and partners hope to change these staggering statistics by bringing awareness to New York City on the dangers of teen dating violence.
