We are RISING in 12 days!

What Does Justice Mean To You?
One in Three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime.  That equates to ONE BILLION WOMEN. One Billion Rising is global call to women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safety in community spaces where they are entitled to justice; where they deserve to feel safe but too often do not. It is a call to survivors to break the silence and release their stories through art, dance, marches, ritual,. song spoken word, testimonies and whatever way feels right.
This year’s theme is JUSTICE.  One Billion Rising For Justice is about envisioning justice for all survivors of gender violence. Justice takes many forms.  It can be an apology or reparations. It can be taking legal action. It can be implementing laws and policies that ensure women’s rights. It can be taking back control, allowing ourselves to heal. It can be making the truth visible. It can be calling for an end to all forms of inequality, misogyny, discrimination and patriarchy. It can be naming and shaming perpetrators. Demanding accountability. It can be rising for justice on a personal, social, economical, cultural or political level. It can be a revolutionary call to restore dignity and respect to women.
