Public Launch of ONE BILLION RISING in Berkeley
An extraordinary all-volunteer group of Bay Area activists, performers, and healers have organized a launch event for ONE BILLION RISING in Berkeley on Sunday evening, June 24th. Everyone is welcome at this free event taking place at the Civic Center Park (MLK @ Allston Way - across from Berkeley High School). The event will feature dance, spoken word, drumming, chanting, martial arts, singing, children's activities and more. Eve will be speaking and celebrating this participatory community ritual to express our collective outrage and vision related to ending gender violence.
"We have grown into a dynamic co-creative force excited to experience these June 24 moments along with you and to help direct our collective energies toward the well-being of our girls, young women, families, communities, as well as those of peoples around the globe."
- Organizer & Berkeley Ritualist Carolyn Hunt
