Love: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (formerly known as When Love Hurts: A Guide on Love, Respect and Abuse in Relationships)

Teen PENNSYLVANIA Coalition Against Rape

Based on PCAR's teen sexual violence prevention campaign, this site allows visitors to listen to clips from the Xpose CD, read excerpts of the TEENesteem magazine, test their knowledge of sexual violence, learn what to do if victimized, and to find out how to advocate for change.

That's Not Cool

That's Not Cool is a national public education campaign that uses digital examples of controlling, pressuring, and threatening behavior to raise awareness about and prevent teen dating abuse. That's Not Cool is sponsored and co-created by Futures Without Violence (formerly Family Violence Prevention Fund), the Department of Justice's Office on Violence Against Women, and the Advertising Council.
