Come join us at the Main Street Café in Los Altos Friday, February 14th to celebrate One Billion Rising Day!
One Billion Rising Day falls on Valentine’s Day and acknowledges the grim statistic that 1 in 3 women will be beaten or raped in her lifetime–in most cases by someone she knows. We want to keep the focus positive on this day and focus on the aspects of relationship that are the opposite of abuse.
We are inviting everyone in our community to bring in a poem, a song, or a story, or even a few words spoken from the heart about what true love, healthy love means to them. Gentlemen are most definitely invited too–some of our most powerful pieces were presented by men last year.
To give you a bit more info about last year’s Women Rising event here’s the news article.
Thanks to the big turnout and lively positive energy, Women Rising was a tremendous success last year. Come join us and help make it even better this year!
