One Billion are Rising Today – February 14, 2013 Marks V-Day’s Worldwide Rise Up
Today is V-Day’s 15th Anniversary, and they “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.”
LA CAN members joined One Billion Rising in Downtown LA today – a rising against street harassment. In Pershing Square, dozens gathered to sing, dance, rise up and demand an end to violence against women.
LA CAN has been a part of V-Day since 2006 and is proud to be an ongoing part of the Vagina Monologues and now One Billion Rising. We thank the organizers of the Pershing Square event for ensuring Downtown LA was included in this worldwide action!
“One billion women violated is an atrocity. One billion women dancing is a revolution.“
