This Valentine’s Day-Share a Message of Love for One Billion Women

RISE, RELEASE and DANCE – One Billion Rising for Justice   Valentine                       

Tomorrow on Friday, February 14, 2014 at  11:30 am  at Ebenezer Baptist Church join the celebration of women survivors of violence. One in three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime. ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a global call to women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safely in community outside places where they are entitled to justice – courthouses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not. That is ONE BILLION Women.  Atlanta will join with activists around the world for One Billion Rising for Justice, the largest day of action in the global movement to end violence against women and girls.  Atlanta will bring together a coalition of organizations, businesses, schools, entertainers, and elected representatives to work to end violence and empower women in our city. Doors open at 11:30 and the program begins at noon.

FLASH MOB AT EBENEZER

12:15 – 3pm – The creation of Atlanta’s largest “Red Tent” at the One Billion Rising Flash Mob
Legendary music producer Tena Clark, composer of the One Billion Rising global anthem, Break the Chain, will lead the flash mob dance. The flash mob dance was created by Debbie Allen of Fame fame and you can learn it from her here!

More than 190 countries, including every city in India, are already signed on to Rise outside court houses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, or other public spaces for justice, marking the call to end the rampant impunity that prevails globally.

 Please, join me, and fellow risers to call for an end to injustice on V-Day 2014.
