Hey,

martha-graham-satyric-festival-song-1986300-dpi-1

I’m part of the revolution of people who will WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP (and us LEARN, DISCUSS, DEVICE) and DEMAND an end to violence against women and girls on 2.14.13. (We’ll also do it on the 13th Feb so that the other two groups that come to class get the chance of taking part in this.)

ONE BILLION RISING is a global call to human beings across the planet to gather in their communities to dance and demand an end to violence against women and girls. Will you join me? Sign up here: http://onebillionrising.org/ (sign this letter and post it on fb, whatever), or pinpoint and EVENT in their map of the world (ours is the only event happening in our town, so far! Check it out here: http://www.onebillionrising.org/page/event/search_simple ).

Still today, the United Nations states that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped [BY A MAN OR MORE, THIS POINT MATTERS! How can we address the problem if we keep pretending the aggressor is not there? 😦 ] during her lifetime — that’s more than one billion women and girls alive today. V-Day, the global movement to end violence against women and girls, refuses to watch as more than one billion women experience violence.

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.” http://onebillionrising.org/

Thank you!
