  • One Love Lunch - Wednesday, May 24, 11:30am-1:00pm
    • Join us for a lunch-time screening of the One Love Foundation's premier film, Escalation, and conversation about how the Foundation is building a movement to end relationship abuse through technology-based prevention tools with their Dallas Regional Coordinator, Zoë Skinner.  One Love’s educational approach starts with the creation of emotionally compelling, film-based content that opens people’s eyes to the presence of unhealthy and abusive behaviors in their lives. This content sparks conversations unlike others that have taken place before and gives people guideposts on how to talk about unhealthy and healthy relationships. In opening people’s eyes and sparking conversations, we are establishing stigma around abuse that we believe is the first ingredient in changing the horrible statistics. To learn more about the work we do, check out our site at www.joinonelove.org

  • One Love Evening Screening - Wednesday, May 24, 5:00-6:30pm
    • Join us for One Love Foundation's 90-minute Escalation workshop, their premier technology-based educational tool they are bringing to high school and college students across the country. This film-based workshop utilizes trained peer-facilitators to lead an open conversation about the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors, providing tangible tools for students to standup for change. To date, over 100,000 students have participated in the workshop and consistently cite it as "eye-opening, yet deeply recognizable."  The workshop begins with a 40-minute film, depicting one example of an abusive relationship.  Following the film, the audience breaks into small discussion groups led by One Love trained facilitators to discuss key scenes from the film. Groups talk about the warning signs, actions that could have been taken, and how the film relates to their own lives. If you are out of college, One Love will lead a separate conversation around how adults can better recognize the signs of abuse and help prevent it. 
    • Please note, the 40-minute film can be triggering as it depicts emotional, physical and sexual violence, and at times extreme violence. We will have trained staff on hand and resources available.
