The World RISES for Justice. Over 100 Countries Signed on!
The One Billion Rising for Justice campaign is rapidly building upon the energy and momentum that was created in early 2013 when one billion activists in 207 countries came together to strike, dance, and rise to end violence against women and girls.
“In 2013, one billion rose around the world to end violence against women and girls in the biggest mass action in the history of the world. This year we are escalating and connecting the dots. We are rising for gender, economic, racial, environmental Justice. We are rising and dancing with our bodies, to end the violations towards our bodies and the body of the earth,” stated V-Day Founder and award winning playwright Eve Ensler.
Expanded Website Featuring Videos from Haiti, the Philippines, South Africa, Syria, & More
The expanded One Billion Rising website will feature activist videos, daily news updates and photos, information on joining the campaign and much more. Individuals and organizations can get involved with One Billion Rising online by adding to the thousands already signed up.
The “This is What Justice Looks Like” project launches today as a forum in which activists can share their definitions of justice in the form of text, image, and video in an online collage on the campaign website. The series debuts with videos from activists in Syria, Haiti, the Philippines, South Africa. Contributors are encouraged to visualize what justice looks like harnessing their power and imagination.
“Imagine, one billion women releasing their stories, dancing and speaking out at the places where they need justice, where they need an end to violence against women and girls. Join us – Rise, Release, Dance!” said One Billion Rising Director Monique Wilson.
The One Billion Rising for Justice Events Map will illustrate the worldwide scope of the movement through a searchable map that includes events planned for the 2014 Rising. Organizers are encouraged to add their events to the map to spread the word about their events and be counted among the Rising. This year, they will have the additional ability to add photos, video links and more information than last year, utilizing the map for maximum public awareness and reach.
