Girls Got Each Other’s Backs

Girls Got Each Other’s Backs is a teen dating violence awareness campaign reaching thousands of youth across San Francisco each year.  La Casa launched the campaign in 2004, infusing a youthful twist into traditional purple ribbon awareness-raising efforts.  Instead, teens and their allies are encouraged to let a friend know “they’ve got her back” by giving her a purple beaded bracelet and wearing one themselves.  Girls who have strong support networks are less likely to be isolated by an abusive partner.  The bracelets symbolize a web of support and acknowledgement that domestic and teen dating violence will not be tolerated.

The campaign bracelets also include a tag encouraging teens to call our statewide, toll-free 24-hour teen crisis line if they or a friend are being hurt, physically or emotionally.

Click if you would like to volunteer to help create bracelets!  La Casa’s campaign is a true community effort, with individuals and groups coming together to help us to prepare campaign materials year-round.
