Dear Readers,
My cousin is currently interning for an organization called Break the Cycle, which focuses on teaching youth about dating abuse and healthy relationships. Check out their website at breakthecycle.org for more information. Break the Cycle has partnered with Verizon Hopeline and their campaign, entitled #VoicesHavePower. With every post on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or the website itself with the hashtag #VoicesHavePower, $3.00 will be donated to various organizations advocating for the ending of domestic abuse, including Break the Cycle. I am here as a feminist, human rights activist, blogger, and social media user to help spread the word. We need YOUR help to support this effort. Below, my cousin put together example posts and phrases to use directly on your social media channels. The content can be used for all major social media networks– Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google +, and Tumblr.
