THE STORY:

An event at University of Virginia in Charlottesville = February 14th. Check out the event for details.

Part of a worldwide campaign organized by Eve Ensler (the founder of V- Day) and activists across the globe, One Billion Rising RVA is your voice (and you!) rising to end violence against women and girls. One Billion Rising RVA is an event, a rally, a revolution, a rising, a chance to dance and celebrate. 2.14.13 is a time to come together to increase awareness, to demonstrate our collective strength, our numbers, and our solidarity across borders. It is a catalyst to a new time and a new way of being.

Why are people rising around the world?
Rally's being developed around the world are an avenue to promote a vision of society that respects, upholds, and values the dignity, rights and safety of women and girls.

It challenges people to view organizing and taking a public stand as a powerful tool in shaping social consciousness into a knowing and deep understanding of women’s safety and security as a basis for responsible community and nation building.

The one billion rising campaign in Virginia hopes to promote critical thinking and dynamism as tools toward social transformation. We are envisioning a world where relationships between people are respectful, healthy and safe.

Together we are advocating for our belief that everyone has the right to live free of sexual and domestic violence.

While a rally may not change the world we hope one billion rising changes the way we view the world

I am fundraising to bring funds specifically to the http://www.vsdvalliance.org - the state-wide coalition in Virginia that provides as state-wide hotline, provides training and resources to local sexual and domestic violence shelters around the state, and advocates for laws to protect the community and services to support survivors.  Donations through this will go directly to the Action Alliance to forward their work and mission.
