The One Love Foundation reaches more than half a million participants

with its educational workshops.

 

Bronxville, NY (January 30, 2019) — Today the One Love Foundation announced they have educated more than half a million people about healthy and unhealthy relationships since the launch of their ground-breaking workshop, Escalation.

Since the conception of Escalation in 2014, One Love has established itself as the foremost authority on relationship health. Utilizing in-person film-based workshops, that spark conversations about healthy and unhealthy relationships, One Love empowers young people to lead a movement to end relationship abuse.

“We’ve reached half a million people in just a few short years with this critical and life-saving information,” said Katie Hood, CEO of the One Love Foundation.  “Our goal is to start a relationship revolution that will teach the next generation to love better.”

This announcement comes ahead of Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, a monthlong observance of the harrowing statistics around dating violence among teens. Each year, nearly 1.5 million high school students experience physical abuse from a partner and 1 in 4 dating teens are abused or harassed online or through texts by their partners. One Love is committed to dispelling the pervasive myths about relationship abuse that allow dating violence to persist.

 

ABOUT THE ONE LOVE FOUNDATION

One Love was founded in honor of Yeardley Love, a 22-year-old college student who was killed by her ex-boyfriend. After her death, the family learned during the trial her death could have been prevented had they recognized the signs of an abusive relationship.
