2015 Public Awareness Campaign

We thought our friend's 'bae' was just really into her. Nonstop texts. Said things like, "You're everything to me." Then, he wouldn't leave her alone. Followed her everywhere! Spread rumors!! Even hacked her Twitter!!! We didn't want to see our friend get hurt, so we found ways to help.

The story above was the theme of our 2015 public awareness campaign. Learn more below!
