The V-Day Core

V-Day is a next-step philanthropy, housed in people's minds and hearts rather than one physical location. Our projects are chosen annually.

The V-Day Core consists of a small number of full- and part-time staff. A much larger number of supporters and V-Day volunteers generously give their time and lend their resources to stop the violence. Eve Ensler has never received payment from V-Day for her work as an author, performer or organizer.
