The One Love Foundation is a national organization founded in 2010 to honor the memory of Yeardley Love, who was killed as a result of intimate partner violence. One Love works with young people across the country to raise awareness about the warning signs of abuse and activate communities to work to change the statistics around relationship violence.  In the Fall of 2016, the Office of Prevention and Education at Northeastern partnered with One Love to bring the organization to campus.

Trained peer One Love Ambassadors lead the 90 minute Escalation Workshop which consists of a powerful video plus a discussion on warning signs of partner violence, how to support a friend in a relationship that is unhealthy or abusive, and how to intervene in order to prevent violence in our community.

1. The Presentation Team: Presenters co-facilitate the 90 minute One Love escalation workshop. Presenters sign up to give presentations that work with their schedules.

3. The Media & Marketing Team: Team members promote and advertise events and initiatives.
