TAKE THE DATING PLEDGE  (Print out the pdf )

Take the pledge and promise to have healthy, safe relationships free from violence and free from fear. Then, share it with your partners, friends and family because everyone has the right to a healthy relationship!

I, (fill in name), promise myself and my partner to maintain a relationship that is based on respect, equality, trust and honest communication. I will value my partner’s boundaries online and behind closed doors. I will never engage in any type of abuse — physical, emotional, sexual, financial or digital.

If one of my friends experiences abuse, I pledge to help them by saying something, modeling healthy communication and connecting them to resources.

I pledge to remember, demonstrate and promote the fact that love is respect.

Love is respect
Love is not abuse
Take action
