Since Demi's tragic, unforeseen murder, I established the Demi Brae Memorial Fund 2007.
I publicly educate teenagers, parents and educators on the warning signs of Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention.
Being Demi's advocate for Teen Dating Violence, along with creating this website www.datingbeyondcontrol.com,
allows me to continue to gift others with the knowledge that she and I did not have.
Education on TDV would have saved her life.
Less than 25% of teen talk to their parents about dating relationships.
81% of parents either believe Teen Dating Violence is not an issue or the admit they do not know if it is issue

58% of teens don't know how to get help
Power and Control is the goal of the abuser
Jealously is a sign of insecurity and lack of trust but the abuser will say it is a sign of love
Abusers never take responsibility for their actions.
Abusers will isolate you from family and friends
YOU can Never "Fix" an abusive partner.
