The Greater New York chapter of the Links held a “Teen Healthy Relationships Conference” in partnership with the mayor’s office to combat domestic violence with the Schomburg Junior Scholars Program at the Schomburg Center for Black Culture. The event addressed dating and cyber abuse, and included special performances. This is the first conference of its type sponsored in Harlem. Over 300 students from local high schools attended, along with organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club, YWCA, shelter programs and religious institutions from around the city.
