Stand Up For What You Believe In..No Really, Stand Up!

Come celebrate fellowship and stand up against violence against women and children, with One Billion Rising.

One in three women will be raped or beaten in her lifetime.

This. Is. Unacceptable.

How many of us have experienced abuse, rather it be physical, verbal, or emotional and in some cases the treacherous trifecta? Perhaps you had a friend, lover, partner, colleague, acquaintance with the recognizable emotional and/or physical signs of abuse. One Billion Rising, an organization that coordinates a time, space, and opportunity for the believers of humanity, to come together stand, rise, and dance fighting violence against women. This special event takes place all around the world, where will you stand?

Let’s demand justice and come together to support our fallen, voiceless, and fellow heroes. Let us strike, stand, march, dance. I’ll see you Valentine’s Day at, San Diego’s event at the Balboa Park Organ Pavilion.
