“The statistics are staggering, and global domestic violence incidents grew exponentially during COVID-19—creating a shadow pandemic,” noted Richardson-Augustus. “Against this backdrop, we must have more constructive conversations to raise awareness, empower people to identify and avoid abuse, and recognize the impact abuse has, not only on adults in relationships and marriages, but on child observers.”
Participants aged 14 through 22 are invited to attend the free event, which will offer a dynamic programme of influential speakers and experts from both the local and One Love community—including legal professionals, charity representatives, judiciary and members of the Bermuda Police Service. The full agenda will include topics on consent and boundary setting, how to exit unhealthy relationships, and more.
• Connect with youth around the world for virtual workshops to learn about the 10 signs of healthy and unhealthy relationships
• Feel empowered to identify and avoid abuse and learn how to love better
• Gain leadership skills to empower them to lead engaging workshops on relationship health in our community—so Bermuda will have its own youth ambassadors
“One Love programming is so effective because it aims to tackle the problem early and relies on young people telling stories and training their peers,” said Richardson-Augustus.
“These workshops start life-changing conversations. We encourage young people to join us in what promises to be an inspiring and instructive three days.”
Giveaways, refreshments and a certificate of participation will be provided to attendees; the event will also count for volunteer programme hours.
