Did you know? There is a law in Rhode Island that requires every middle school and high school to educate all staff and students about the dynamics of abuse and have a policy on how to respond to incidents of dating violence. It's called the Lindsay Ann Burke Act.
We recently conducted an evaluation to find out how the Act is being implemented in our state. We've published our findings in a report that offers five recommendations for strengthening teen dating violence prevention efforts in Rhode Island.
To request a hard copy of the report or executive summary, contact the RICADV at firstname.lastname@example.org or 401-467-9940.
