Intimate Partner Violence Prevention

One Love is a non-profit organization founded in 2010 in memory of Yeardley Love, a senior at University of Virginia who was beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend on May 3, 2010. After this tragic incident, Yeardley Love’s mother, Sharon Love, founded One Love to help educate as many young people as possible about the warning signs of relationship abuse as well as to encourage others to be active bystanders when they witness signs of abuse, including highlighting the differences between healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors. One Love aims to educate, empower and activate young people in a movement for change in their communities surrounding relationship violence.

One Love at Boston College 

One Love has developed the "Escalation" workshop to help educate young people about relationship violence and facilitate a dialogue about the warning signs of abuse. Through a recent partnership between One Love and the BC Women’s Center, we are excited to bring this empowering and educational workshop to Boston College and provide our community members with this vital information about a growing problem on college campuses.
