Relationship abuse is an epidemic that affects our country far more than people realize or are willing to admit. In fact, while more than 1 in 3 people will be in an abusive relationship, only 33% of teens who have experienced an abusive relationship ever told anyone (National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey).
We are proud to partner with One Love to create a Men’s and Women’s Performance Polo that will help with the fight against relationship abuse. One Love was founded to honor Yeardley Love, a young woman who was tragically killed by her ex-boyfriend on May 3, 2010, just three weeks shy of graduating from The University of Virginia. Her family learned during the trial that there were signs Yeardley was in an abusive relationship.
Since its inception in 2010, One Love has dedicated itself to educating, empowering, and activating young people to recognize and address the signs of unhealthy relationships. Through its workshops, One Love has reached more than 2.4 million people, educating students and people across the country.
Yeardley’s impact in our home community of Charlottesville, VA will not be forgotten and we are honored to be able to create a shirt in her memory. We will be donating 20% of all net sales from The One Love Performance Polo to One Love. If you would like to support One Love directly, you can click here.
