Y-PLAN NYC’s Three Year Partnership with the Mayor’s Office Is Combating Domestic and Intimate Partner Violence in Schools and Neighborhoods by Ciera Dudley
For the third year in a row, the New York City Mayor’s Office to Combat Domestic Violence (OCDV) has worked in partnership with Y-PLAN NYC students to make schools hubs of healthy, equitable dating behaviors and leveraging the power of young people to combat abuse across the city. What Y-PLAN students are doing in these projects is harnessing the school –the built environment and social resources- as a site to disrupt cycles of intimate partner abuse, domestic abuse, and non-consensual behaviors.
