HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.

A group of prominent men in the state, dedicated to ending domestic violence by serving as role models to boys, held a news conference in Hartford on Wednesday morning.

The men are from the Interval House in Hartford. The group says that one-in-three teenagers report being physically, sexually or emotionally abused by their partner.

We’ll have much more on what the members of Interval House are doing to change things tonight on News 8.
