A resolution was passed by the Mt. Lebanon Commission to support the passage of the Demi Brae Cuccia House Bill 2026 which requires middle and high schools to teach students about teen dating violence in their health classes.

"It's important to get these kids when they're young and learn for themselves what a healthy relationship is versus a non-healthy relationship," Dr. Gary Cuccia, Demi's father, said.

I am very pleased to see such a high level of support for this very important piece of legislation. Any steps to potentially save the life of a child is a move in the right direction. I applaud the Commission.

Mt. Lebanon Commissioner and parent of a teen dating violence survivor, Commissioner Joe DeIuliis sponsored the Mt. Lebanon's Teen Dating Violence Resolution which passed unanimously.
"There are classsic warning signs for this type of teen dating violence. We must educate those most vulnerable to these danger by teaching them the warning signs."

He and his wife, Attorney Grace DeIuliis, at the invitation of Dr. Gary Cuccia (father of teen dating violence murder victim, Demi Cuccia) traveled to Harrisburg to lobby for the passage of HB 2026 in the state legislature.

"We must protect our daughters, we must protect our community from violent teens such as convicted attempted murderer Robertino DeAngelis and convicted murderer John Mullarkey. Else we leave our young teen daughters defenseless and alone on the front lines, uneducated to the dangers and thus, putting their very lives at risk," added mother, Grace DeIuliis, Esquire, "There are warning signs. Students must be educated to recognize them; the ripple effect once that knowledge is learned will touch families for generations to follow. Lives will be spared and communities will not longer be subjected to this senseless, heinous violence."
