One Love's Mission to End Relationship Abuse

One Love provides relationship health education to help young people understand the difference between healthy and un- healthy relationships, as well as early warning signs of abuse. We believe together, we can help stop abuse and provide the skills needed to love better.


The foundation was started in honor of Yeardley Love, a college senior whose life was tragically cut short by her ex-boyfriend. After the trial, Yeardley’s family learned that her death could have been prevented had they recognized the signs of an abusive relationship.

Since Janaury 2015, our educational workshops have reached 900,000 people. We've trained 22,000 volunteers to hep lead our educational workshops for ages 8-25+. Our online content has been viewed over 100 Million times. 

Here is a snapshot of our educational content offerings, categorized by age group:

Escalation Workshop
90-min or Three 40-min Sessions
Recommended for ages 14 – 22
The Escalation Workshop is a film-based experience that educates about the warning signs of an abusive relationship. Utilizing peer-facilitators trained by One Love staff, Escalation provides young people with the framework they need to identify the warning signs and the tools to help a friend who may be in an abusive situation.

Behind the Post
40 – 60 min
Recommended for ages 14 – 22
Social media can skew our view of the relation- ships around us and, in some cases, influence our decisions to stay in unhealthy ones. Use our guide to explore all 10 signs of an Unhealthy Relationship and start the conversation with your friends. Discussion guide includes a classroom lesson plan.

Because I Love You
20 – 60 min
Recommended for ages 14 – 18
This series is focused on how the phrase “Because I Love You,” can be very manipulating in an abusive relationship. To help you with this conversation, we’ve created a guide complete with questions and answers to help you talk about controlling statements and other un- healthy relationship behaviors.

Love Labyrinth
20 – 60 min
Recommended for ages 14 - 18
This powerful video focuses on how feeling trapped in the Love Labyrinth is a very real and very frightening symptom of relationship abuse. Even the tiniest of behaviors from your partner can impact your self-esteem, independence
and ability to recognize the relationship you deserve.

Couplets
15 min per Video and Discussion
Recommended for ages 11 – 13
This series consists of eight short clips that show both the healthy and unhealthy version of a situation. The discussion guide also includes a lesson plan with discussion questions and class- room activity ideas.

Start the Conversation:
How adults can talk to young people
See guide for suggested discussion lengths
Recommended for ages 25+
Our goal is to equip parents, caregivers, and other adults working with young people with tools to engage their children and the young people they work with in conversation about the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors. The guide provides action steps one can take if they suspect the young persons in their life are in an unhealthy relationship. 

Here is the impact One Love is creating: 

“The day after my son started working with One Love he broke up with his girlfriend. This movie did more in one class period than my sister and I did with conver- sations over the last two years. All parents should be using your tools. Thank you for giving my son a voice.”
- High School Parent

“Today our junior class went through the workshop and when it ended, they all turned to me and thanked me for sharing this with them. They said they needed to see this.”
- Teacher

“One Love is pioneering the fight against relationship violence in ways that have never been done before. This organization is increasingly important and necessary given our current social and political climate, and I love that it is making a change where change is definitely needed!”
- One Love Campus Ambassador

OUR IMPACT

"One of my friends who was at the workshop last night texted me last night about her friend she didn’t realize is in an abusive relationship -  She called her friend and talked about it last night. She said this was the first time her friend was honest with her about how her boyfriend has been treating her. Thanks for doing what you do, you already made a difference in someone’s life here at LUC!"

“Your Love Labyrinth video helped me realize that the relationship I was in was unhealthy and my boyfriend at the time was emotionally abusive and controlling. It was like watching a short film of what I was facing daily. Thank you so much. Leaving him was very messy and scary and emotionally taxing but I'm so thankful that I was able to. My friends and family had been warning me about him, but I made excuses. Your foundation helped me wake up and realize that it was not normal. Keep it up, you changed my life. God bless.”
