This giving season support V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against all women (cisgender, transgender, and those who hold fluid identities that are subject to gender-based violence), girls and the planet.
Your Solidarity & Support Make This Movement Possible. Please consider giving to V-Day this season.
The global pandemic has changed our world in unprecedented ways, confining us, taking loved ones away from us and forcing us to reckon with the intractable systems that keep countless people oppressed. Similarly, the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, unrelenting violence from regional conflicts in places like Congo, Venezuela, Israel/Palestine, and the impact of climate catastrophe have revealed how those in power determine the fates of those who are made to think they have none.
Yet everywhere, V-Day and One Billion Rising grassroots activists are pushing boundaries and engaging in dialogue to thrust forward the most innovative and creative solutions to challenges on the ground, all the while with an intersectional lens and art and activism at the forefront. They are rising against a wave of right-wing nationalism, white supremacy, misogyny, and greed. And they are rising to center the voices and experiences of the most marginalized. They have met the moment by escalating the urgency with which they are fighting for gender, climate, economic, and racial justice. And they are doing so despite needing support themselves.
Your solidarity and support makes it possible for us to build this extraordinary movement. From City of Joy to Voices, the Safe House in Kenya to The Apology, the Beyond Incarceration Project to the One Billion Rising, the work is as vibrant and deep as ever.
We hope you will consider donating today so that we can keep fighting for the world we all envision – one where all women, girls, and the planet thrive instead of merely survive. Help us grow this movement!
As we approach the end of another year, we are once again filled with gratitude for this unique, ever-changing, and stunning movement.
P.S. If your gift is already on its way, thank you!
