Happiest RISING New Year!
With your generous support, V-Day ROSE to extraordinary heights in 2013!
Our call to take to the streets and STRIKE, RISE and DANCE was heard, and in over 207 countries, women and men gathered in the largest mass global action to say NO MORE – we are ONE BILLION and we demand an end to violence against women and girls.
We thank you from the depths of our hearts, we could not have done it without you. We wish you all a Happy, Joyous, Safe and Healthy New Year!
As we all gather this coming 14 February for One Billion Rising For Justice, may your stories be released and may violence against women and girls end!
