About The Event

Wartburg College is participating in the global event One Billion Rising for Justice on Friday, February 14, 2014 to demand an end to violence against women and girls. Gather at the 10:15AM Chapel Service where red balloons will float among the pews. Each cast member of The Vagina Monologues has tagged a balloon to represent their commitment to rise to stop violence against women and girls. Each chapel worshiper is invited to take a balloon, sign their name to the attached card as their commitment to stop violence against women and girls, and then release the balloon to another person, who continues the rise by adding their name to the card and passing the balloon to another person. Each balloon will continue its journey throughout the day, sharing the message, gathering names as a commitment to rise to stop violence against women and girls. By 6:30PM, all of the balloons should be returned to the V-Day table in the Student Center where a Wartburg is Rising! valentine cookie will be enjoyed by all. The Wartburg V-Day committee will have a special One Billion Rising for Justice surprise statement.
