Dating violence does not discriminate when it comes to age, and some Algoma High School students want to help their classmates be prepared to face it. Members of Today's Teens at the high school and the Violence Intervention Project will hold an assembly to address teen dating violence. The featured speaker will be Buck Blodgett of Love>Hate who'll share his experience as a father whose daughter was murdered by a former boyfriend. Violence Intervention Project organizer Kim, whose last name is being withheld as a matter of the group's security policy, says having teens take the lead on dating violence can carry more credibility with their peers.
Algoma's Teen Dating Violence Assembly will be held at 8:00 AM on March 12th at the high school on Division Street.
