One Billion Rising is a global event aimed at ending violence against women. One in three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime. That makes one billion women. We can all help reduce this terrible statistic.
You are invited to join the VWC’s Women’s Issues Committee at the Santa Cruz area’s ONE BILLION RISING event on Friday, February 14 from 5-7 pm. This is a free and family-friendly event with lots of music — and dancing! It takes place from 5:30 to 7 pm at the Kaiser Permanente Arena in downtown Santa Cruz, preceded by a candlelight walk from the County Courthouse steps to the Arena starting at 5 pm.
