That’s Not Cool is an award-winning national public education initiative that partners with young people to help raise awareness and bring educational and organizing tools to communities to address dating violence, unhealthy relationships, and digital abuse. Our vision is for everyone to experience healthy relationships― online and off. The program’s interactive website, tools, and resources support young people as they learn to recognize, avoid, and prevent dating violence in their lives.
The program is built on the belief that young people must lead the way in creating change online, in their schools, and in their communities. That’s Not Cool works to lift the voices of the most silenced and marginalized communities of young people including (but not limited to – we are always looking to grow!) LGBTQI youth, Native youth, youth living with disabilities, and youth of color. Our work provides youth leaders with the tools, training, and support they need to bring localized violence prevention public education campaigns to their communities. That’s Not Cool also provides tools, resources, and technical assistance to adult allies—such as educators and advocates—working with youth leaders or young people experiencing dating violence.

The mission of the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) 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.
That’s Not Cool is supported by the U.S. Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women. OVW administers financial and technical assistance to communities around the country to facilitate the creation of programs, policies, and practices aimed at ending domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking.
