The Rage, Rejoice and RISE lineup of speakers and performers continues to expand & inspire – we are honored to announce that Rhanda Dormeus, mother of Korryn Gaines and #SayHerName activist, will join us as well as Batalá NY whose drumming is sure to get us dancing in the aisles.

Presented by V-Day, Middle Collegiate Church & One Billion Rising, Tuesday evening’s event will be both a calling up and a love note to extraordinary women who are Rising in unprecedented ways across New York City, the country, and the world. These may come in the form of a poem, a sermon, a speech, a rant or a prayer.

RISING for immigrant, disabled, Palestinian, LGBTQIA, & Indigenous rights; for those who face caste discrimination; for climate justice; a just and ethical church; the incarcerated; economic justice; a Green New Deal & for the freedom of all women and girls (cisgender, transgender, and those who hold fluid identities that are subject to gender-based violence).

See “Dismantle” Performed LIVE

The Archduke will have their debut live performance of the new single, “Dismantle” at Rage, Rejoice & RISE. The song is a fusion of soulful afrobeats and a classic New Orleans bounce, with lyrics that exemplify and raise awareness of the work needed to end sexism.

V-Day and OBR Activists: During our V20 year, we issued a call for new art, particularly art that engages men in ending violence against women. This new hip hop single is the perfect addition to play during upcoming benefits events and risings, as well as to share with your cast and audiences via social media to call in men to DISMANTLE patriarchy.

Watch the “Dismantle” music video here & join us Tuesday night in NYC to hear it LIVE.
