BENEFITING: One Love Foundation in honor of Yeardley Love
EVENT DATE: Oct 15, 2016
One Love was founded in 2010 to honor Yeardley Love, a UVA student who was beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend just weeks before their graduation.
After her death, Yeardley's friends and family were shocked to learn the statistics about relationship violence and to realize that no one knew how at risk Yeardley really was.
Today, One Love honors Yeardley by working with young people across the country to raise awareness about the warning signs of abuse and activate communitites to work to change the statistics about relationship violence.
The mission of the One Love Foundation in honor of Yeardley Love is to end relationship violence by educating, empowering and activating young people in a movement for change.
