On Tuesday, September 27th, Day One commemorated the achievements of our organization and the amazing young people who work with us in the effort to end intimate partner violence.
At our gala we affirmed the strength and dedication of the survivors, advocates and supporters we are proud to call allies. We honored BNY Mellon and Verizon for their advocacy and support. We had special remarks by our Honorary Benefit Chair Tamron Hall, of NBC News' 'Today' & MSNBC, and Melissa Mark-Viverito, Speaker of the New York City Council. In our Voices Against Violence, young survivors, a former intern, the Commissioner of the Mayor’s office to combat Domestic Violence, community supporters and Day One’s Board member and a Peer Leader spoke about the importance of Day One in their own lives and communities.

Two in three teens who are in an abusive relationship don't tell anyone.
Alienation and shame keep many teens from coming forward about intimate partner violence. For Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month in February, we want to break the silence and encourage conversations around dating abuse. Join us as we ask one question:
What advice would you #TellYourself when you were younger about dating, relationships or life?
We are creating a dialogue that connects individuals of all ages through their shared experiences as teens, encourages more open discussions around healthy and unhealthy relationships and shows those who may be struggling that they are not alone.

At the end of the month, we’ll award the most “liked” post with a special prize!
