About The Event

On August 17 (Thursday) 2023 from 2 PM, Edogawa City will be organizing a workshop to dance with the song “Break the Chain” in solidarity with women who experience violence. Through lectures and workshops, Edogawa City aims to raise awareness of human rights and gender equality. On this particular dance workshop, Edogawa City hopes to achieve a society where everyone is respected and feel safe regardless of their gender. To do that, Edogawa City is actively working to eradicate violence such as sexual violence. You do not have to be a dancer to join this event! We have invited a dance instructor to help us to learn the moves of Break the Chain. We wish to see people from various age groups especially middle and high school students, backgrounds, and gender to “break the chain” from violence.
