SUPPORT OUR MISSION BY CREATING YOUR OWN FUNDRAISER.
The Yeardley Reynolds Love Foundation was created in 2010 to honor the memory of Yeardley Love, a UVA senior who was beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend just weeks short of graduation. The Foundation is more popularly known as One Love, with “One” representing the number that Yeardley wore on her jersey during her high school and college lacrosse career.
After her death, Yeardley’s family and friends were surprised to learn the statistics – that 1 in 3 women in this country will be in a violent relationship during her lifetime – and grew increasingly aware that young people in particular did not seem to realize that they, as a group, were at greatest risk.
Today, One Love’s ambitious goal is to end relationship violence by educating, empowering and activating young people in a movement for social change. One Love develops creative technology-based tools and resources that meet young people where they are and inspire them to action.
