Escalation Workshop, Film Documentary & Discussion
February 3, 2020 7:00-8:30 PM

Escalation is a true story re-enacted in honor of Yeardley Love, a 22-year-old college student who lost her life to an abusive relationship. Nobody saw the signs; but shocking to learn that 1 in 3 women, 1 in 4 men, and 1 in 2 trans and non-binary people will experience relationship abuse. The One Love Foundation educates young people about healthy vs unhealthy relationships, and mobilizes them for change. (Sponsored by Issaquah High PTSA. Public welcome. )
