A member of the high school staff who has been instrumental to the success of Victor’s project is Patricia, the school’s coordinator for building healthy relationships among students. She and a local shelter have helped to train staff, students, and parents on the signs of dating abuse – and what to do about it. The program is modeled on a 2011 resolution passed by the Los Angeles Unified School District through the work of Peace Over Violence, a grantee of BSCF’s Blue Shield Against Violence (BSAV) program.
