Did you know that one in three teens is in an abusive relationship? Even more shocking, most don’t leave their partner. One New Jersey teen is taking a stand against violence in teen dating with his movie “Payin’ The Price.”
Jordan Coleman, also a Do Something Awards recipient, wrote and directed the film that was shot around his hometown Hackensack, N.J.
"Instead of one in three [teens having been a victim of dating violence], it should be none in three," the 16-year-old, an honor roll student and athlete, told NJ.com.
Check out this video clip of “Payin’ The Price,” which is currently on a 20-city tour around the U.S. It also won HBO’s Best Feature film category at the 2011 Martha’s Vineyard African-American Festival.
