MTV's MAKING THE BAND DAY 26 SIGNS ON WITH SAVING OUR DAUGHTERS SPEAKING SERIES AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE & TEEN ABUSE

Atlanta, GA -The members of Day 26 has joined the popular "Saving Our Daughters" speaking series presented by Its Cool To Be Smart. On Monday March 30th, Day 26 spoke to 11th and 12th graders at McNair high school on issues that affect young women (i.e. domestic violence, teen abuse, & women empowerment).

The group came out and warned over 300 teen girls about the dangers of domestic violence and how to stay away from it. "They really took their time to explain just how special young women are and I know that the ladies took every word in, stated Tequilla Whitfield Artist Program Director/Mentor for Its Cool To Be Smart/Saving Our Daughters.

The guys were able to deliver a powerful message to the girls in a way that made sense. Each member was able to add their own insight. Q surprised the teens by removing himself from the panel amongst his group members to sit in the audience with them, causing the gymnasium to fill with screams and excitement. After regaining control, the guys were able to participate in a Q&A session. Some of the questions that were answered included:

What advice would you give a teen going thru an abusive relationship?
If you are in a relationship and your significant other hits you, what should you do?
Do you know someone that is in or has ever been in an abusive relationship? What did you say to them?

At the end of the discussion, Will left the girls with a final message, "don't stay in an abusive relationship, get out and run to find help!"

Beginning in April, It's Cool to be Smart, the "Saving Our Daughters" speaking series, and Day 26 will collaborate to help champion positive messages to teenagers in select high schools across the country.
