Sue Scheff: Moms and Dads for Education to Stop Dating Abuse

MADE - Moms and Dads for Education to Stop Dating Abuse

MADE: Moms and Dads for Education to Stop Teen Dating Abuse is a national coalition of parents, teachers and concerned citizens who are advocates for ensuring that every middle school and high school in the country is teaching a curriculum on preventing dating relationship violence and abuse.

MADE is inspired by those courageous and dedicated parents who are committed to mobilizing people across the nation to spearhead education efforts in all middle and high schools after watching their children suffer at the hands of a violent partner.

MADE aims to strengthen the pathways to healthy dating relationships and take the essential steps to break the cycle of relationship violence in the future.

MADE is working to support the 50 State Attorneys General who have endorsed a teen dating violence resolution and have committed to introducing curricula on dating violence education in their state's schools.

MADE is working with the National Foundation for Women Legislators (NFWL) and their outstanding members to support the introduction of legislation to teach about teen dating abuse and violence.
