1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men will be in an abusive relationship in their lifetime
TOGETHER, WE CAN CHANGE THE STATISTICS AROUND
The Center @ 862 invites you to a screening of the eye-opening film, “Escalation” on Wednesday, May 31, at 7:30 PM at the Scarsdale Public Library. A panel discussion with Sharon Robinson, founder of OneLove Organization, Lauren Pomerantz of Scarsdale-Edgemont Family Counseling Service, NYS Assemblywoman Amy Paulin, and Youth Officer Sherri Albano of Scarsdale Police Department will follow. This provocative film provides thoughtful conversation and suggestions on how to talk about unhealthy and healthy relationships with their loved ones. Awareness of the issue is the first step in turning around these alarming statistics.
OneLove Foundation, was founded in 2010 when Yeardley Love, a University of Virginia senior from Bronxville, NY, was killed by her ex-boyfriend. OneLove’s mission is to ensure that everyone has information about unhealthy and abusive relationships and understands the danger in these types of relationships and empowers them to leave an unhealthy situation—or help a friend to leave—before it escalates to abuse.
The Center@862 will be working with OneLove to build Scarsdale’s own Team OneLove, a community of over 15,000 people nationwide.
High school students will be trained to become OneLove facilitators at the Center, 862 Scarsdale Avenue, Scarsdale, NY in early June. These students will organize future screenings of “Escalation” for their peers and moderate discussion groups following these screenings.
It’s time to educate ourselves and our children about healthy relationships
