A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant, & A Prayer
From the VDAY Website:
"Welcome to V-Season 2020

V-Day, the global movement to end violence against all women and girls (cisgender, transgender, and those who hold fluid identities that are subject to gender based violence) has seen its work evolve over the past three years. The rise of misogynist, authoritarian regimes the world over - from the United States to the Philippines, India to Brazil - has recalibrated our work, further escalating the urgency with which we feel compelled to fight for gender, climate, economic and racial justice.

We are in the midst of a rising tide of right-wing nationalism, white supremacy, fascism, tyranny, hatred of and fear of immigrants, misogyny, femicide, homophobia, transphobia, corporate greed and climate destruction. We cannot beat these violators on their terms. We will never be that cruel, discompassionate, greedy, or murderous. We cannot let ourselves be changed by or sunk in their cynicism, hatred, divisions and destruction.

What we can do is remember we are the many and we can RAISE THE VIBRATION through Action, Art, Connection, Imagination and Love.


That is why we do theater, music, art, poetry, dance.
That is why we stand in the face of injustice and are just.
That is why call out the systems that create insane inequality and we give more.
That is why we open the borders of our heart when the state builds walls, detention centers and refugee camps.
That is why we reach out to include everyone in our circle of rising as the state creates further and further divisions between us.
That is why we devote ourselves to developing trust and solidarity, to joining our issues in solidarity, because this bond, once secure becomes our wings.
That is why we move our bodies so that the freedom and energy we shake loose becomes a new energy bringing in a new future.
That is why we see, cherish, nurture, respect and protect our Mother Earth as we are not separate from her. Her life is our life.

Together, we RISE to free all women (cisgender, transgender, and those who hold fluid identities) from sexual, physical, racial, economic, political, socio-cultural, ideological and climate crisis violence. We RISE to end rape, battery, incest, sexual harassment, female genital mutilation, sexual slavery and trafficking, child marriage, femicide, sexual, gender and reproductive oppression, violence towards LGBTQIA+ communities. We RISE to end capitalism, colonization, racism, imperialism, climate catastrophe and war.

Join us in 2020!"
