Sojourner hosting Healthy Dating Youth Summits in effort to eliminate teen dating violence
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Chances are that you've seen or maybe even used the hashtag "me too" on social media. For many, sexual assault is top of mind right now.
Milwaukee's Sojourner Family Peace Center is taking action. They held one of a series of "dating summits" for teenagers. These are designed to eliminate dating violence involving young people and to build healthy relationships.
One special area of concern is social media. One of the guests at the summit wants teenagers to be better "digital citizens."
"I just kinda want to empower them to know that it's all of our responsibility to kind of be a digital bystander and to report what we see and to take care of each other online," said Lynn Gahagan with Children's Hospital.
Sojourner Peace Center is holding 16 dating summits with the help of a $25,000 grant from Verizon.
