This event will be held on the University of Arizona Main Campus just East of Old Main on the grassy area/Mall. 1200 E University Blvd, Tucson, AZ 85721 on Monday February 14th, 2022. We will gather at 4PM. This event is free and open to the public. Please wear a mask and abide by social distancing protocols. Optionally you can wear a white, pink, red, or black shirt. There will be extras available at the venue.

Following this time we will perform the flashmob "Break the Chain" and end with a call to action.

About The Organization

Esperanza Dance Project

The Esperanza Dance Project is a community-based collaboration that uses a multimedia dance performance to educate about the issue of childhood sexual violence and deliver a message of hope, strength and empowerment. Our mission is to eradicate stigma, secrecy and shame associated with surviving childhood sexual violence. The Esperanza Dance Project's vision is that all high school students in Arizona learn to recognize warning signs associated with sexual abuse, feel comfortable discussing it openly and compassionately, and become familiar with local resources for support.
