Carondelet Rising 2017: Empowering women to be agents of change

United States > Concord > 1133 Winton Dr., Concord, CA 94518 > 2017-02-13 > 5:30pm-7:00pm

About The Event

Carondelet invites the community to join with us as we rise in solidarity to end violence against women. We do this by emphasizing what brings us together as a community instead of focusing on the issues that might divide us. Now in our fifth year of celebrating the international One Billion Rising mass action, Carondelet will host a student-led community event on Monday, Feb. 13 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. The program will include guest speakers, engaging activities, dancing (we'll teach "Break the Chain"), a "Rise Up" performance by our nationally acclaimed dance team, informational booths, and more. Join us!

About The Organization

Carondelet High School

Carondelet High School is a four-year Catholic college-prep school serving young women of the San Francisco Bay Area. Founded in 1965, Carondelet's mission is to inspire excellence by preparing young women to live with heart, faith and courage in the Catholic tradition and the spirit of the Sister of St. Joseph. The goal of this event is to empower our students to be advocates for social justice and equality.

About The Organizer

Sarah Daniel

Ms. Daniel is the Director of Student Activities and has been the Carondelet High School student activity advisor since 1998. About six years ago, she became aware of One Billion Rising and V-Day, and ever since then, we have celebrated the day with educational videos from One Billion Rising, guest speakers, and interactive lunchtime activities. We teach the students the dance "Break the Chain," which is about breaking the chain of abuse, and we educate the girls about abuse toward women. Carondelet supports and embraces the idea that no one should be physically, emotionally, or mentally abused. Ms. Daniel is proud to be a part of empowering young women.
