In Memory of Siobhan 10/16/89 – 4/12/09


In memory of Siobhan’s fifth angelversary we post this powerful video from the El Paso County, Texas, Don’t Let Yourself Campaign. Watch this and see how many of the early warning signs you can identify, then share it with a teen you know. Let’s remember Siobhan by helping someone learn about teen dating abuse.

Thanks for another great DASH at Dulles!!

A massive thank you to everyone who came to walk with us yesterday, both physically and spiritually. We had over 30 participants and raised $725. These donations are a vital part of keeping DASH in your community. Your loving support keeps Siobhan’s voice loud and clear as we work to combat teen dating violence in her name. We love you Shev.
