In Sexual Assault Awareness on November 9, 2010 at 8:00 am

Your cell phone, IM, and online profile are all digital extensions of who you are. When someone you’re with pressures or disrespects you in those places, that’s not cool. That’s Not Cool provides tools to help you draw your digital line about what is, or is not, okay in your relationships.

That’s Not Cool is a national public education campaign that uses digital examples of controlling, pressuring and threatening behavior to raise awareness about and prevent teen dating abuse. That’s Not Cool is sponsored and co-created by the Family Violence Prevention Fund, the Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women, and the Advertising Council.


The Family Violence Prevention Fund (FVPF) www.endabuse.org believes that everyone has the right to live free from violence. For more than three decades, our model programs have created safer, more prosperous communities for women, children, and families around the world.

The Advertising Council

The Ad Council www.adcouncil.org is a private, non-profit organization that marshals talent from the advertising and communications industries, the facilities of the media, and the resources of the business and non-profit communities to produce, distribute and promote public service campaigns on behalf of non-profit organizations and government. For over 65 years, the Ad Council has produced hundreds of public service campaigns that address the pressing social issues of the time.

Office on Violence Against Women

The mission of the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) www.ovw.usdoj.gov is to provide federal leadership to reduce violence against women, and to administer justice for and strengthen services to all victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. This is accomplished by developing and supporting the capacity of state, local, tribal, and non-profit entities involved in responding to violence against women.
