ONE BILLION RISING: It’s Time to Strike, Dance, Rise!

Updated on July 23, 2018

It’s time to ...


It’s time to break the chain of violence
that impacts our women and young girls.

It’s time to Strike, Dance, and Rise in revolution
as “One Billion Rising” around the world.


It’s time to say, “Enough! Let’s stop this violence,”
as a collective unit taking a personal stand.

It’s time to make violence awareness and protection of women
not an option, but a vital demand.


V-Day is a global movement of grassroots activists
dedicated to supporting this worthy cause.

In their first 14 years, raised 90+ million dollars to distribute,
were top-rated and are well-deserving of our applause.


Today’s statistic that 1 in every 3 women
will be raped or beaten in their lifetime
is unacceptable and so horrific
that it is staggering to the human mind.


V-Day promotes creative events like “One Billion Rising”
to educate and change social attitudes worldwide.

Envisioning for mothers, daughters, sisters, nieces, partners and friends
to live in a world where they are free to thrive.


Join the movement, add your voice, make a difference,
take the lead and find something to do.

It’s time to help protect and save our women and young girls,
because like me, but by God’s grace,
1 of those 3 violated could be you.


Be blessed, One Love

      Thanks Sis! I've gotten so caught up in it. :-) I spent V-Day with a group of 9th grade girls at their after school program, "Just Between Us." It was great! Details in next article. :-) I'm loving it!

      Blessings Sis,
