The WIL Program is proudly supported by Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson:

image007“I commend the “What is Love” organization for holding this event in our community to bring awareness to the very important issue of teen dating violence. When nearly 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner in a single year, that indicates a larger problem,” said Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson. “We must send a message to our youth that is not appropriate behavior and there is help and support available. I look forward to continuing my work with ‘What is Love’ to encourage proactive solutions for teens in my district and throughout the state of California”

What is Love is an important organization in this battle for awareness. I commend them and others who take a stand against violence.”
