 ,   Add to calendar
 San Anselmo-Fairfax  See map

Magic happens when we gather together and dance for a cause. Let’s rise up and Sweat our Prayers through a 5Rhythms™ Wave dedicated to stopping violence against women all over the world. We CAN change the world with our bodies, sweat, and prayers! This event is for ALL...men AND women are welcome!

Let’s dance to find solidarity in motion, for it is only together that we can change things.
    
Let’s dance for those who cannot rise, for those who are victims of violence, for all women, men, and children who are hurt by violence against women.

Let’s dance for the boys who can't cry and the girls who can't be angry.

Let’s dance for the places within us that long to heal, and for a new way to be in relationship with each other.

RISE UP and join us!

"When One Billion bodies rise and dance on 14 February 2013, we will join in solidarity, purpose and energy and shake the world into a new consciousness."
     ~ One Billion Rising


ONE BILLION RISING IS:
A global strike
An invitation to dance
A call to men and women to refuse to participate in the status quo until rape and rape culture ends
An act of solidarity, demonstrating to women the commonality of their struggles and their power in numbers
A refusal to accept violence against women and girls as a given
A new time and a new way of being
