The 6th Annual V-Day Sedona production of Eve Ensler's award winning play "The Vagina Monologues" benefits the Verde Valley Sanctuary.
The Verde Valley Sanctuary is a multi-service agency that responds to the problem of domestic abuse in the Sedona Verde Valley community. The agency was founded in 1993 when concerned citizens met, formed a board of directors, established a safe-home network, and began to plan and develop basic services. Programs have grown and been developed in response to community needs and presently include an emergency shelter with a 24-hour hotline, transitional housing, community and youth outreach, and legal advocacy.
V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Playwright/Founder Eve Ensler's award winning play The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works. In 2011, over 5,800 V-Day benefit events took place produced by volunteer activists in the U.S. and around the world, educating millions of people about the reality of violence against women and girls. To date, the V-Day movement has raised over $85 million and educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it, crafted international educational, media and PSA campaigns, launched the Karama program in the Middle East, reopened shelters, and funded over 13,000 community-based anti-violence programs and safe houses in Democratic Republic Of Congo, Haiti, Kenya, South Dakota, Egypt, and Iraq. In 2001, V-Day was named one of Worth Magazine's "100 Best Charities," in 2006 one of Marie Claire Magazine's Top Ten Charities, and in 2010 was named as one of the Top-Rated organizations on Great Nonprofits.
