Dating violence was more common among black (12.2%) and Hispanic (11.4%) students than white (7.6%) students. DATE RAPE DRUGS INTERNET SAFETY 100,000 children & teens are lured into prostitution / pornography each year in the US

Don't ever go off with strangers, even if they promise food, shelter, love, a ride, or any sort of help

Inappropriate pictures and sexting are NOT okay...avoid pornography and sexting at any cost

Looking at, reading, and listening to pornographic material is very harmful. It is unrealistic, and decreases your ability to stay connected and committed to your significant other. It decreases your feelings about sexuality, and may lead to serious sexual crime.

Never give out information or pictures to strangers online. Be wary of people that seem too interested in your personal life.

FOLLOW YOUR INSTINCTS! Date rape drugs are usually dissolved into a person's drink or food. They make the victim feel sedated, hypnotized, confused, and like they have amnesia.

Date rape drugs let a person abuse, steal from, sexually assault, or rape the victim without resistance.

These drugs are colorless, tasteless, and odorless...they might as well be invisible!

Be careful with food and drinks that could be spiked with these dangerous drugs! Never leave your drink alone or let anyone else hold it. Go to, and leave parties with a group of friends so that everyone can look out for each other. How Can I Help and What Can I Do? Hotlines and Help Domestic Violence Hotline: 1-800-787-SAFE (7233)
