Escalation Workshop

Presented by: One Love Foundation

May 20, 2016 from 0200 to 1530

The goal of the workshop is to end relationship abuse by educating us about warning signs and how to respond when we see them.

Jordyn Cohen of the One Love Foundation sends this description of the Foundation's mission and the Escalation Workshop: 

One Love was founded in 2010 after Yeardley Love, a senior at the University of Virginia, was killed by her ex-boyfriend a few weeks before her graduation. We are dedicated to ending relationship abuse by educating, empowering, and activating young people in a movement for change. The Escalation Workshop is the catalyst for this movement -- it is 90 minutes long and consists of a 40 minute film followed by a guided discussion geared towards  understanding the warning signs of abuse, while also promoting healthy relationships. The workshop is being rolled out at schools across the nation – almost 400 college campuses and about 150 high schools have participated in Escalation to date, and the number is growing every day. 

Thanks to a generous grant from the Baltimore Ravens, we are working to bring this workshop and movement to every high school and college across Maryland.
