Join One Billion Rising To End Violence Against Women on V-Day Feb. 14th

One Billion Rising is a Global Call to Action to end violence against women
and girls by coming together, taking a stand, and dancing in solidarity!
According to the UN, one in three women will be raped or beaten in her
lifetime. That's one billion women. One billion women violated is an
atrocity. Through this movement and day of action our community is voicing
its commitment to end violence against women and girls. Globally, there are
more than 5000 actions organized from 160 countries! See
www.onebillionrising.org for details.

We hope you'll join us as Portland's stands in solidarity with women across
the world who are rising up and demanding an end to violence against women
and girls!
