About V Is for Vote
Read the V-Proclamation
V Is For Vote is a grassroots voting campaign created with and by thousands of local V-Day activists and individuals in the U.S. V-Day activists will mobilize register and get out the vote efforts anchored around their V-Day 2004 events and activities. V-Day is outreaching to the Presidential candidates urging them to make Violence Against Women a central issue of their campaign platforms, not a sideline or "women's" issue. Ultimately, V-Day will mobilize its activism into political power through V Is For Vote as V-Day supporters “Vote to End Violence.”
V-Day is a non-partisan, 501 (c)(3) organization and we do not align ourselves with any particular political party or candidates.
