1 Billion Rising Events

Newburyport – One Billion Rising for Justice!

United States > Newburyport, MA > 50 Water Street > 2014-02-15 > 04:00

About The Event

ONE BILLION RISING began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. While the National movement is on Valentine's Day, the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center will assemble and invites the local community to gather with us at 4:00 pm, on Saturday, February 15, 2014, in The Tannery Marketplace parking lot, Newburyport, as our flashmob joins with activists around the world for ONE BILLION RISING, the largest day of action in the history of V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against women and girls.
