One Billion Rising on V-Day

by Katie on February 13, 2014

One in three women will be beaten or raped in her lifetime.

I was stunned when I read that statistic. That is one billion people. ONE BILLION.

In response, One Billion Rising was born. In honor of the one billion. This campaign is a global movement created by V-Day, an organization whose mission is to end violence against women and girls. They envision a world where women are free to express themselves, free from fear and shame. Free to thrive and live in peace. On this Valentine’s Day, One Billion Rising invites women and the men who love them to Rise up, Dance, and Demand an end to this violence. Dance to raise awareness, open our hearts, and create community and communion.

Will you dance with me on February 14th? Let’s make this V-day truly about love.

Check out this trailer to see the One Billion Rising global movement in action.
