Are you participating in 1 Billion Rising this year?  1 Billion Rising is a campaign to end violence against women organized by V-day, the anti-violence against women organization founded by Eve Ensler (Vagina Monologues).  From the campaign:

On V-Day’s 15th Anniversary, 2.14.13, we are inviting ONE BILLION women and those who love them to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to this violence. ONE BILLION RISING will move the earth, activating women and men across every country. V-Day wants the world to see our collective strength, our numbers, our solidarity across borders.

CALCASA wants to be sure to highlight any efforts you are conducting or participating in related to this campaign.  Please email us a short message with the essential details of the event and we’ll add it to the CALCASA calendar.
