Eve will speak at a pre-march Women's Convergence with Jane Fonda, Mimi Kennedy, Q'orianka Kilcher, Rhea Perlman, Susan Sarandon, Congresswomen Maxine Waters and CODEPINK Co-Founders and leaders.

After the convergence, march with Eve and V-Day at this historic call for peace!

2) Eve on Good Morning America
This Wednesday, January 24th Eve Ensler will be discussing V-Day and her new book, Insecure At Last: Losing It In Our Security-Obsessed World on the ABC hit morning news show Good Morning America. Tune in tomorrow for an exciting announcement from Eve!

3) Help RAINN Give Hope
Every 2.5 minutes, another American is sexually assaulted. One in six women and one in 33 men will be victims of sexual assault or rape in their lifetime. This is an issue that affects us all.

RAINN, the nation's largest anti-sexual assault organization, has helped more than one million people affected by sexual violence. Now they are seeking volunteers to help even more. This year, make volunteering for RAINN your New Year's resolution. Join us in providing support to those who need it most.

By becoming a volunteer for the new National Sexual Assault Online Hotline, you can be a part of this generation's most innovative source of support for sexual assault victims. The Online Hotline provides live, secure and anonymous help to the growing number of people who prefer communicating via the Internet - giving those affected by sexual violence a safe place to turn when they can't find their voice.

This year, make your time online count. In 2007, help RAINN give hope. For more info, and to sign up to be a volunteer, visit http://www.rainn.org/ohlvolunteer.
