As many as one in three teens will deal with physical, sexual, verbal, or emotional abuse in a relationship.
This is something Amanda herself has personally experienced, she revealed when speaking about her ex to Cosmopoliton magazine. "(He) ended up breaking my heart. I was so hurt. I’m a confident person, but it killed me."
As part of her involvement, Amanda will travel to high schools to speak to youth and raise awareness about the problem.
You can sign the online petition to encourage states to pass laws requiring middle and high schools to teach about healthy relationships.
7,449 people have signed. Won't you be one of them?
Following is a video in which Amanda talks more about the cause and announces she will be working on a new movie next year after "taking the rest of the year off to enjoy being 22."
