28 Dec You Make the V-Day Movement Possible
As the year draws to a close, we are filled with gratitude for the survivors, artists, activists, friends, and supporters who make the V-Day movement possible.
V-Day has unleashed vast grassroots, anti-violence work on college campuses and in communities – visionary work that has been survivor-led and focused, all the while revealing the power of art and activism to change culture and systems. Spanning over 200 countries, the movement has organically spread through word of mouth, the ingenuity of activists and a collective desire to build communities that upend intractable injustices. And across the globe it has helped to build a network of grassroots activists engaged in hands-on social justice projects and communities of women who are rebuilding their lives in the aftermath of violence.
In 2023, V-Day will mark its 25th year. As we write, Voices, One Billion Rising, & City of Joy activists are planning artistic uprisings, pushing boundaries and engaging in dialogue to thrust forward the most innovative and creative solutions to challenges on the ground, with art and activism at the forefront.
V-Day’s founder/playwright and author V (formerly Eve Ensler) will release her newest book Reckoning, the work of a lifetime — political, personal, profound, and more than forty years in the making and reflecting the core of ideas at the heart of our work. Join us on 1 February at 92NY to celebrate V’s newest work and kick off V25, for info/to purchase tickets, visit vday.org/reckoningnyc.
This giving season, we invite you to support our work to end violence against all women and girls (cisgender and transgender), gender expansive people, and the planet.
31 December is the last day to make charitable donations in order to claim them on your 2022 tax return. We hope you will consider donating today so that we can keep fighting for the world we all envision – one where all women, girls, and the planet thrive instead of merely survive.

As we approach the end of another year, we are once again filled with gratitude for this unique, ever-changing, and stunning movement.
P.S. If your gift is already on its way, thank you!
