Mission Statement

One Love exists because Yeardley was killed and her death was avoidable. Today, we work to ensure that everyone has information about unhealthy relationship behaviors that could lead to relationship abuse.

Description

One Love was founded in 2010 after Yeardley Love, a senior at the University of Virginia, was killed by her ex-boyfriend, also a UVA scholar athlete. After her death, Yeardley’s friends and family were stunned to learn that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men will be in an abusive relationship in their lifetime. Young women ages 16-24 are at 3X greater risk and have limited awareness of that fact. One Love exists because Yeardley was killed and her death was avoidable. Today, we work to ensure that everyone has information about unhealthy and abusive relationships that Yeardley, her friends and her family did not. We want everyone to understand the danger in these types of relationships and empower them to leave an unhealthy situation-or help a friend leave-before it escalates to abuse.
