Cindi Santana

Yesterday I read the news about Cindi Santana, a teenager killed by her boyfriend. What's even worse is that she was actually killed on school grounds.

Stories like this one are why I work against intimate partner violence, especially dating violence. The LA Board of Education has approved a resolution to expand programs preventing dating violence, as of yesterday. 

How many times does it have to get to the point of murder before school districts realize that we need prevention programs? The ones that exist only do because of a high profile case in their area. For once, I wish we could focus on prevention before it's too late.
