Maintaining a healthy relationship remains important no matter how old you are.
The Domestic Violence Coordinating Council hosted a rally a the Walker Ford Community Center. Our own Shonda Knight emceed the event and helped giveaway prizes for teens who answered questions correctly.
Some kids that followed the DVCC on social media were given purple shirts that read 'Love Is Respect'.
"One of the first places you want to start is with teens while they're very young," said DVCC director Kelly O'Rourke. "They're just learning to date and to them you know the whole fight, make up, break up thing is very passionate. They're new at this they don't understand all the ups and downs."
The FAMU women's basketball team also helped at tonight's event.
