Talk title: Building a Movement from the Ground Up
Katie Hood is the CEO of the One Love Foundation, a non-profit working to build a national movement to end relationship abuse. The foundation was created to honor Yeardley Love, a UVA senior who was beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend in 2010. One Love exists because Yeardley was killed and her death was avoidable if anyone – including her – had understood the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships. Since launching its national educational efforts in 2015, One Love has reached over 135k students with its educational workshop, Escalation, and over 60 million people through its #ThatsNotLove digital campaign. Learn from Katie what it means to build a non-profit start up, and a movement, from the ground up.
