Turning the Page: Writing the Next 20 Years of Healthy Love

This #GivingTuesday, we are embarking on a powerful journey: “Turning the Page and Writing the Next 20 Years of Healthy Love.” For two decades, Day One has been at the forefront of change, partnering with over 200,000 young individuals, families, educators, and communities to nurture healthy relationships and pave the way for a world free from dating abuse. Each year, we’ve added a new chapter to our story, and as we mark our 20th anniversary, we’re eager to write the next two decades with the same passion, dedication, and hope that have defined us so far.
