Bay Area Rising's 'Evolution' Dance! Drum! Rise!
Tragically, 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. The ONE BILLION RISING global movement to stop violence against women and girls, led by Eve Ensler's non-profit V-Day, seeks to express global outrage about that fact and envision a violence-free world.
BAY AREA RISING announces this year's event, 'Evolution' Dance! Drum! Rise! a community performance ritual in Oakland, on Saturday February 14th, to raise $10,000.00, the proceeds of which will go to support local and global organizations that promote justice for women and girls.
