What's in a Name
The Don't Die Young name is not a passive suggestion to youth, but it is an impassioned plea for them not to accept the environmental conditions that result in youth dying emotionally, spiritually and physically. The Don't Die Young brand will advocate for young people through messaging that confronts the issues that inspire youth violence.
As a resource for organizations serving youth and their families, Don't Die Young offers a marketing toolkit with Don't Die Young branded images and content for social media and promotional opportunities.
