ONE BILLION RISING End Violence Against Women - Events Across the Bay Area Today Click here for a full list of events in the bay area. Locations include Fairfax as well as many other Marin locations, and a Flash Mob event at San Francisco City Hall at 5:30. See below for details.
Today, celebrate Valentine's Day in a powerful and positive way by taking part in ONE BILLIION RISING, a worldwide movement to end the violence against women. According to Sustainable Fairfax board member Renee Goddard, "this is the biggest gathering in history for social/gender justice."
The aim of these events is not only to show solidarity with the women who have experienced these atrocities, but also to make a seismic shift in attitudes about these human rights abuses through positive energy, DANCE and a spirited "RISING UP."
Gatherings will occur all over the world today, including many in the bay area.
