We are Calling on All of Our Friends, Colleagues, Neighbors, Students, Community Members to engage in this powerful global movement for social change. V-DAY.org has initiated this ONE BILLION RISING Campaign to raise awareness and ultimately end violence against women across the globe.
At UVM, the Women’s Center is going to be working together with folks in our community to organize a Rising on campus on February 14th, 2013 at 12pm in the UVM Davis Center Atrium and Bailey-Howe/Davis Center GREEN. We are asking those that will join us in the global movement to wear red and/or pink and come together to dance and move in whatever way your body is inspired to to show our commitment, our support, and share our resilience and strength.
NOT in the Burlington VT area? DON’T WORRY because YOU CAN STILL BE INVOLVED! If you are here locally, consider coming to UVM’s Rising. If you are not local there are Risings sponsored all over the globe. Visit vday.org or look up #1billionrising to find an event near you OR consider planning one of your own.
At bare minimum all you have to do is show up and dance. Interested in getting involved in more ways than that email firstname.lastname@example.org or comment on this post and we will be offering many ways to be involved and to collaborate in making this one of the biggest and most empowering events our community and ultimately our world has ever seen!
Let’s RISE TOGETHER!
DATE & TIME –> FEB 14th, 2013 @ 12PM
LOCATION –> UVM Davis Center Atrium AND Bailey Howe/Davis Center GREEN
WEAR RED and/or PINK and come to DANCE!
WHAT IS ONE BILLION RISING?:
ONE IN THREE WOMEN ON THE PLANET WILL BE RAPED OR BEATEN IN HER LIFETIME.ONE BILLION WOMEN VIOLATED IS AN ATROCITYONE BILLION WOMEN DANCING IS A REVOLUTION
On V-Day’s 15th Anniversary, 2.14.13, we are inviting ONE BILLION women and those who love them to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to this violence. ONE BILLION RISING will move the earth, activating women and men across every country. V-Day wants the world to see our collective strength, our numbers, our solidarity across borders.
What does ONE BILLION look like? On February 14th, 2013, it will look like a REVOLUTION.
ONE BILLION RISING IS:
A global strike
An invitation to dance
A call to men and women to refuse to participate in the status quo until rape and rape culture ends
An act of solidarity, demonstrating to women the commonality of their struggles and their power in numbers
A refusal to accept violence against women and girls as a given
A new time and a new way of being
