DASH at Alexandria Hospital Cares Day

Wendy Claunch was the guest speaker at the INOVA Alexandria Hospital Cares About Domestic Violence Awareness Day. The event is held every year during October in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention month. The staff and nursing students were eager to learn more about Shev’s story and how they, as the first line in health care, can intervene in teen dating violence cases. An active question and answer session followed the presentation. Thank you to Debra Evans, Maria Leathers and Karen Bune for inviting DASH to the event.

Lycee International welcomes DASH


Earlier this year, Frankie Russell presented DASH to the American Student Council at her school, the Lycee International, in the Parisian suburbs. The Student Council is an assembly of pupils from 6-12 grade who are elected each year to represent their classmates. They meet every week to share relevant information across the grades in all kinds of areas, such as student life, health and well-being, and current events in the USA. As a result of Frankie’s presentation, DASH was invited to be present at the annual American Section picnic, which was attended by some 500 American Section families. Frankie and her two friends, Camille and Dalia, did an amazing job of sharing information about dating abuse to parents and students, and the response was amazing. There was a sea of green bracelets, and the statement was made loud and clear in France! Dating Abuse Stops Here.
