STRIKE! DANCE! RISE! in an effort to shake the world into a new consciousness to end violence against women! The One Billion Rising Campaign is ran by the V-day organization to collectively strike in solidarity, joy, rage, recklessness, and happiness upon dancing along our fellow community members. We want the world to see our strength and hear our voices.
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.
