One Billion Rising Event in Rocklin on February 14th




In Rocklin On February 14, 2013, at 11:45am, Sierra College will join with activists around the world for One Billion Rising , the largest day of action in the history of V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against women and girls.

 One Billion Rising began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than One Billion Women and Girls. On February 14, 2013, V-Day's 15th anniversary, Sierra College will join activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities, and women and men across the world as we express their outrage, demand change, dance, and RISE in defiance of the injustices women suffer, demanding an end at last to violence against women.

 "When we started V-Day 14 years ago, we had the outrageous idea that we could end violence against women," said Ensler. "Now, we are both stunned and thrilled to see that this global action is truly escalating and gaining force, with union workers, parliament members, celebrities, and women of all backgrounds coming forward to join the campaign. When we come together on February 14, 2013 to demand an end to violence against women and girls it will be a truly global voice that will rise up."

 One Billion Rising will be followed by Sierra College's student directed production of Vagina Monologues.  Donations accepted for the 12:30 show (seating is limited, first come/first seated) and tickets are available for the 7pm showing at the door or at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/316228.  $10 General admission, $8 students and seniors, $5 students with ASSC stickers.  Proceeds benefit Stand Up Placer.
