Overview:

Every day millions of lives in the U.S. are devastated by violence. On average, 24 people a minute are victims of physical violence, rape or stalking by an intimate partner. That adds up to more than 12 million women and men a year. The reality is that this doesn’t only affect adults. There are millions of young people in this country, many of whom may be students of yours, whose lives are affected—sometimes shaped—by violence.

This resource toolkit includes scenarios for teacher and student discussion, questions for students, and classroom activities.
