One Love's Mission to End Relationship Violence

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 January 2015, our educational workshops have reached more than 1,500,000 people.

We’ve trained more than 38,000 volunteers to help lead our educational workshops designed for ages 8 - 25+. 

Our online content has been viewed over 100 MILLION times.

Here is an overview of One Love's educational content offerings:

See guide for suggested discussion lengths

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 are a few testimonials from people that One Love has helped: 

“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 conversations 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
