PLAN

  • Gather your team to help plan the event.
  • Choose your location, your start and ending time.
  • Choose your music and your dance moves! If you are not comfortable using the Debbie Allen choreography for “Break The Chain,” we encourage you to consider creating your own choreography or using choreography created by activists around the world. To read the statement from the One Billion Rising Global Coordinators, click here. Since 2012, activists have been creating their own dances locally and they are incredible. Here are some examples. 
  • Decide how you want to RISE. It can be anything! Whatever represents YOUR revolution!
  • Make signs, posters, stencils, shirts, & any other artistic method to spread the word and engage your community.

RISE!

  • On or around 14 February 2017, leave your work, leave your school, interrupt the day, rise for revolution, dance, drum, and demand an end to the violence!
  • Make 14 February 2017 a “day of action” by organizing your friends or colleagues to volunteer at local women’s shelters or service centers – promote your plan on the Facebook Page and across your own social networks.
