One Love is working to end relationship violence by educating young people about healthy and unhealthy relationships and mobilizing them in a movement for change. Below is a bit of information about One Love – this short video also provides a helpful overview. One Love was created to honor the memory of Yeardley Love, a UVA senior who was killed by her ex-boyfriend just weeks before graduation. After her death, Yeardley’s family and friends were shocked to learn that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men will be in an abusive relationship in his or her lifetime and that young women ages 16-24 are at 3x greater risk. 

Today One Love works to give others the information that Yeardley and her friends and family didn’t have about what unhealthy and potentially dangerous relationship behaviors look like, empowering them to help themselves and their friends. To do this, One Love partners with high schools, colleges, and community groups, to provide digital campaigns and the film-based Escalation Workshop as a catalyst for this conversation.

Check out these One Love Couplets….Couplets are brief animated messages that define the difference between a good relationship and an unhealthy one. If you see 3 or more of these warning signs in your relationship, it’s a problem. Don’t be ashamed to tell someone when #thatsnotlove

Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Resources are available in the top 8 languages:  http://www.k12.wa.us/ESEA/ESSA/Resources.aspx

OSPI has translated five of our Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) flyers into the Top 8 languages spoken by Washington’s students. Those flyers address some of the biggest pieces of ESSA, including Title I: Federal Programs, Title II: Teacher & Principal Quality, Title III: English Learners, as well as Equity and 21st Century Community Learning Centers. These flyers were created to help readers understand the new federal education law—without first taking a course in legalese. They have been translated into Arabic, Korean, Russian, Spanish, Somali, Tagalog, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese. English-language flyers are available on the ESSA resource page.
