Dating & Domestic Violence: Truths and Myths


May 11, 2010 — We are saddened and shocked by the death of one of our own this past week.  In his remarks at Yeardley Love’s candlelight vigil, President Casteen charged us all, in honor of Yeardley, to recognize abuse and act on it whether we experience it ourselves or observe it in others. 

Here on Grounds, we are fortunate to have the resources of the U.Va. Women’s Center.  Their resources are many and remind us that dating violence is far more prevalent than we would like to believe. Please take time to visit these pages on their website to glean insight on this important issue.   

Other sites to find more information on relationship violence include Red Flag Campaign, Live Strong and Dating Violence Prevention Center
