Parents of slain teen push to rename dating violence curriculum
It was known as Bree's law when it passed the legislature in 2015, but curriculum related to teen dating violence hasn't carried the same name.
The measure was inspired by the story of Breanna Moore of Anchorage, a 20-year-old shot to death by her boyfriend in 2014.
Bree's parents, Butch and Cindy Moore, are now lobbying for a bill to name statewide dating violence education after their daughter.
"It humanizes the education that we already have in the schools. Kids just really identify with Bree's story. Bree was not much older than a lot of the teens in high school right now," said Cindy Moore.
The couple joined KTVA's First Take at Five to talk about the bill and other statewide initiatives in light of Teen Dating Awareness month.
