One Billion Rising Los Altos

 

  WOMEN~SV, along with several other women’s groups “convened” the community at Main Street Café in downtown Los Altos, on Thursday , Feb 14,.

And what a huge success it was, thanks to all the wonderful women—and men!! —who turned out to express their idea of what healthy love looks like. It was SRO—Standing Room Only!! —as you can see from the pics:

And the paparazzi were out in full force! Here’s the link to the Patch coverage which includes a brief video clip:

We all shared songs, read poetry, spoke from the heart. And everyone who participated got a rose, thanks to a generous donation from Trader’s Joes.

People are still talking about the spirit of love, solidarity, and connection that filled the room, proving once again there are no strangers at Jaime’s café—only friends we haven’t met yet. In fact it was so successful that Jaimie says we can do it all again next year. Thanks Jaimie! Thanks to everyone who was there that day—in person or in spirit—and who helped us show the world what “true love” really looks like!
