Wear Orange on 2/26 to Support SADD

By Agostino D’ancona

February is not only a month of love, but also a month to raise awareness for Teen Dating Violence. Teen dating violence may seem unbelievable, but it happens more often than you think. About one in three teens in the U.S. experience physical, sexual or emotional abuse from the person they are dating. Our SADD chapter here at Salisbury has been spreading the word to wear orange this Friday to show support to end and spread awareness about teen dating violence.  SADD has also set up a display case in the main hallway by the library with pictures and statistics about teen dating violence awareness.

SADD strongly encourages you to wear some sort of orange this Friday, whether it’s a t-shirt or something as subtle as nail polish. SADD has also shared this link with students to check out what qualifies as teen dating violence and they encourage everyone to look at this link so they can be more aware of what it really is.
