Here’s Eve’s message:
We started V-Day 14 years ago, we had the outrageous idea that we could end violence against women. Since then, hundreds of thousands of V-Day activists in audiences and on stages in over 140 countries have come together to demand an end to violence against women and girls. The funds we’ve raised together have kept organizations’ doors open, and the issue front and center in local media.
But still today, the United Nations states that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime that’s more than one billion women and girls alive today.
V-Day wants the world to see our collective strength, showing them exactly what one billion looks like.
ONE BILLION RISING is a promise that on February 14th, 2013, we will ensure that millions of women and men rise up around the world to say, “ENOUGH. The violence ends NOW.”
Linda, there is so much more to come. But for right now, you can help us launch ONE BILLION RISING with a few simple actions:
- Share ONE BILLION RISING with your networks
- Sign up for our text message updates in the US by texting BILLION to 50555
- Follow V-Day on Facebook and Twitter
ONE BILLION RISING will make the earth move by uniting us through dance across every country.
