Join Us for “Talking With Teens About Healthy Relationships”

Parents and community members are invited to “Talking With Teens About Safe and Healthy Relationships,” a free event sponsored by Melrose High School and the Melrose Alliance Against Violence (MAAV).  It will take place on Monday, February 6 at 7:00 pm in the Melrose High School Learning Commons.

The program will feature a screening of the powerful film “Escalation,” followed by a discussion on teen dating abuse and healthy teen relationships facilitated by Melrose High School student leaders.

“Escalation” was created by the One Love Foundation, an organization that is dedicated to ending relationship violence by educating, empowering and activating students. The One Love Foundation was created in response to the 2010 murder of Yeardley Love, a University of Virginia student, by her ex-boyfriend.

This adult-only event is a preview night for the same program being presented to MHS Seniors on February 9.

SAB Visits Freshmen Seminars

Members of MAAV’s Student Action Board recently wrapped up their first session of presentations to the MHS Freshmen Seminars. The student leaders educated all MHS freshmen on the topic of harassment, and facilitated group discussions with the very receptive and engaged groups of students. Read more about this important work in the recent Boston Globe op-ed “Tackling teen sexual harassment.”
