1 Billion Rising for Justice in Winnemucca!!


Participate any time, anywhere all day on 2/14/14! Get up and dance! In your house, your workplace, your school, anywhere YOU feel survivors of violence and those who love them should feel safe and entitled to justice! Send us your videos of you and loved ones dancing in support of survivors of violence everywhere (videos will not be posted without permission from all in the video)!

On 14 February 2014, we are escalating our efforts, calling on women and men everywhere to RISE, RELEASE, DANCE, and demand JUSTICE! ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a global call to women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safely in community outside places where they are entitled to justice – courthouses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not. It is a call to survivors to break the silence and release their stories – politically, spiritually, outrageously – through art, dance, marches, ritual, song, spoken word, testimonies and whatever way feels right.
