ABOUT ONE LOVE:

One in three women and nearly one in three men experience relationship abuse in their lifetime. More than 1 in 2 transgender people will experience intimate partner violence in their lifetime. Three women a day are killed by their current or former partner in the US alone. The statistics around relationship abuse make it a public health epidemic that all of us have a stake in changing. Data and Statistics

Started out of a relationship violence tragedy – the death of Yeardley Love in 2010 – The One Love Foundation is the national leader in educating young people ages 11+ about relationship health, educating more than 1.5 million young people through educational workshops both in-person and online. Through film-based workshops and peer-to-peer discussions, One Love addresses the differences between healthy and unhealthy relationships and the warning signs of abuse in an accessible way. One Love creates safe spaces where young people can identify and talk about the issue. Workshop participants leave equipped with the vocabulary and tools needed to act when they see unhealthy behaviors and abuse both as bystanders and in their own relationships. One Love empowers young people to improve the health of their relationships and to spread this message in their communities.

Today, One Love’s campaign is equal parts national and local in its scope. Nationally, One Love has created a mission, messaging and educational tools that standardize the language used to teach young people about healthy and unhealthy relationships. One Love's recent Theory of Change process affirmed their commitment to serve “all youth” with an increased focus on the following: youth of color, LGBTQ+, male-identifying, those who are disabled, and whose first language is Spanish or Mandarin.

Locally, One Love works on the ground with young people, schools, youth-facing community groups and social service partners to ensure that their programs are used in a way that is right for each community. Regional teams build deep roots and authentic partnerships within a given region that can help accelerate the movement to end relationship violence. In 2017, One Love established on-the-ground teams to increase the velocity of their efforts in engagement and activation. One Love now has staff on the ground in five regions and by serving these communities full-time, One Love is amplifying a conversation about relationships that is changing and saving lives.
