Invitation to One Billion Rising Event

by Thea

Joining thousands of women and men around the world, we invite you, your colleagues, neighbors, friends and family to a Community Speakout to End Violence Against Women being held under the auspices of Eve Ensler’s international One Billing Rising project.

On the 15th Anniversary of V-Day, a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls, the Arlington Speakout will take place:

Time: Thursday, February 14, 2013 from 7-9 PM
Location: Calvary Church United Methodist, 300 Mass. Ave. Arlington, MA 02474
Directions: Near Spy Pond, street parking, 77, 79, 350 bus routes

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.

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 end
  • An act of solidarity, demonstrating to women the commonality of our struggles and our power in numbers
  • A refusal to accept violence against women and girls as a given
  • A new time and a new way of being
