Our Mission- Putting a Stop to Relationship Abuse
Love is on of our deepest expressions as a human, and one of the most important things we often search for. Yet we are never really taught about love. And more importantly taught what the difference is between a healthy and unhealthy relationship. We need to educate young people about this distinct difference, empowering them to identify and avoid abuse and learn how to love better.
- On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men.
- 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner. This includes a range of behaviors (e.g. slapping, shoving, pushing) and in some cases might not be considered "domestic violence."
- 48.4% of women and 48.8% of men have experienced at least one psychologically aggressive behavior by an intimate partner.
- Only 33% of teens who were in a violent relationship ever told anyone about the abuse.
WHAT CAN BE DONE?
These alarming rates are very eye-opening to say the least, and not something often talked about. But what can we do about this?
We need to start educating communities from a young age to know the difference between a healthy and unhealthy relationship and how to get out of an unhealthy relationship if you are in one!
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Thus what we do to contribute, is that we donate 10% of your purchase's value from our TBD Collection to a non-profit organization named OneLove that works with young people through powerful films and honest conversations.
The One Love Foundation is a registered 501 (C)3 non-profit that focuses on educating communities on healthy and unhealthy relationships.
