About the Event

Girls talk about relationships as one of the “big issues” in their lives as early as fifth grade. With 1 in 3 high school girls experiencing a controlling or abusive relationship, it is important for you to know the warning signs and where and how to find help…

Ruling Our eXperiences (ROX), The Center for Family Safety and Healing and Nationwide Children’s Hospital have teamed-up to provide you with the resources, education, and support to navigate teen dating relationships.

"I Matter" is a free, annual community conference with 300+ attendees. Through inspiring sessions led by experts, girls in grades 6-12 will learn the skills they need to engage in safe and healthy dating relationships and girl moms and female mentors will gain the tools and strategies necessary to support the girls they care about.
