On the One Billion Rising for Justice event of last year, we focused on the issue of justice for all survivors of gender violence. Events took place in 200 countries, where women, men and youth came together to Rise, Release and Dance outside of court houses, police stations, government offices, schools, embassies, or simply gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not.
This year we are rising for Revolution.
We invite you to join us.
Dance is one of the most powerful forces on the earth and we have only just begun to tap into where it can take us.
Dancing allows us to come back into our bodies as individuals and groups and a world, it connects our feet to the earth and inspires us to move at her rhythms.
Dancing is defiance. It is joyous and raging. It is contagious and free and beyond corporate or state control.
We have only begun to dance.
One Billion Rising and One Billion Rising for Justice are the beginning. We’ve danced. We’ve demanded justice.
Now we are demanding CHANGES.
Change can happen if WE ACT NOW AND WE ACT TOGETHER!
ONE BILLION RISING is a global movement, a catalyst, a worldwide decision to end violence against women, a demand for justice, an invitation, a gathering of the ready, housed everywhere, housed in our hearts.
Raising YOU, US….
