Mayor Andy Hewitt signed a proclamation declaring February as Teen Dating Violence Awareness month.
Bridger Valley SAFV advocate Ambia Pawlak stated one in three students report abuse, however two-thirds of the cases go unreported.
“Our goal is to get out in the community and educate them,” Pawlak said. “We see a lot of stalking cases in the Valley. We stay as busy as the Evanston office. We filed two stalking orders last week in the Valley. We’ve had victims as young as 14. This issue is real. We lose funding every year. Our statistics are unbelievable. We thank you for your support.”
