Please heavily document your event. We’re especially interested in Photos and Videos
For the past five years, on or around 14 February, Risings took place around the world, in hundreds of cities, in virtually every country on earth. We have made history.
In 2018, we RISE in Solidarity Against the Exploitation of Women and we want the world to witness every sight and sound of this extraordinary global action. HERE’S HOW!
Document and share everything you do for One Billion Rising Solidarity Against the Exploitation of Women. Share your photos, video and audio updates with the global audience!
For your RISING event(s), please share your photos, video and audio updates with the global audience so they can experience it as it happens – or as close to it! Before and during the events, utilize social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat.
Tell the story of what’s happening using these channels. Be sure to tag us and use the official hashtags #1BillionRising #RiseInSolidarity and #RiseResistUnite to include your posts on our digital hub at onebillionrising.org and across our social channels for the world to see. The more we share, we spread the word and trend on social media platforms around the world, reaching even more people.
Tag us or post directly to our accounts:

NOTE: If you want to share your posts with the global audience, please be sure to make your Facebook and Instagram posts public.
Don’t forget to go to the Toolkit for profile and background images!
Please film your event using the highest resolution files available. Make sure you’re also keeping full-resolution versions of what you share – we’ll want to gather it after your event HERE.
Note – you will need to post a Public Filming Notice at your venue, and if you interview people about the rising, it would be wonderful if you can have them sign release forms so that we can use the footage for V-Day’s uses on our website, or film, etc.
Create a Snapchat geo-filter for your event:
Although Snapchat doesn’t offer global geo-filters, you can create custom on-demand local geo-filters for your events as low as $5/day at https://create.snapchat.com/
You can create your custom design after logging in, and get a price quote depending on your time range and location area. The current maximum area is 5,000,000 sq ft (less than 1km x 1km)
Streaming your event LIVE:
In the last few years, streaming technology and the general public’s comfort with it has come a long way, making them much more accessible. Using the apps and platforms below you can now stream your event directly from your phone, tablet or computer. Capture the flashmob, an art piece, activists sharing why they RISE or the whole event live from your phone.
So if you want to broadcast the revolution in real time, here are some options:
FACEBOOK LIVE, INSTAGRAM LIVE & PERISCOPE
These free and easy options have been used to broadcast intimate interviews to huge mobilizations, from Standing Rock to the Women’s Marches. You can play the video directly into your community Facebook page or Twitter account feeds, all you need is a dedicated person with a fully charged phone or tablet (and backup batteries). Additionally, a phone/tablet tripod or stick can be extremely useful to maintain a stable shot, especially for outdoor or long events.
IMPORTANT: Before broadcasting, make sure to change your Audience to “Public” so people outside of your network can view and share it.
