Preventing sexual and domestic violence require going beyond naming the problem. It require promoting the behaviors that we want to see. I am pleased to see Futures Without Violence’s new Respect Campaign that promotes… simply said… RESPECT. (And, yes, you can hear Aretha Franklin singing and spelling out “R.E.S.P.E.C.T.” in the Respect Campaign video.)

We’ll be honoring the everyday heroes who encouraged us to value those who are different, or urged us to believe in ourselves. In fact, we’re asking the public to answer a very simple question: Who would you like to thank for teaching you Respect?

For me, I have to credit my parents for teaching me about respect. Thanks mom and dad!
Who taught you respect?
