Today the Love family, through the One Love foundation which it created, is launching phase one of their "Be 1 for Change" initiative, which aims to serve as the base of a long-term campaign to combat relationship violence in the United States. The initiative has launched a free, anonymous danger assessment application, which is available for smart phones, and a public service announcement to be aired nationally.
"The development of the app and the PSA is a big first step in our long-term plan to change the perception of relationship violence and combat this intolerable behavior," Sharon Love said.
