One Love's Mission to End Relationship Violence

by The One Love Foundation in honor of Yeardley Reynolds Love Vetted since 2015

Summary

The One Love Foundation's mission is to end relationship violence by educating, empowering, and activating young people in a movement for change. Created to honor Yeardley Love, a UVA senior who was beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend just weeks before graduation. After her death, her family and friends were shocked to learn the statistics that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men will be in an abusive relationship in his or her lifetime. One Love's work today is dedicated to changing those statistics.

Challenge

1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men will be in an abusive relationship in his or her lifetime and young women ages 16-24 are at 3X greater risk.

Solution

To accomplish our mission, we are focused on deeply engaging young people by meeting them where they are with best in class, emotionally powerful tools that reach them in a unique way. These tools were created to give students a voice and inspire them to work in their communities for change. First and foremost, we want young people to understand the behaviors and risks that are associated with unhealthy relationships so that students can help themselves or their friends.

Long-Term Impact

We want to create a social stigma around unhealthy behaviors and celebrate healthy behaviors. We believe that by changing the social climate that currently enables abuse to take place, we will reduce the amount of social capital required for bystanders to intervene. Ultimately, we hope to increase young people's sense that this is their social issue to solve.
