About The Event

We have rocked the plaza the last two years making a statement that we would not tolerate violence against women and children in our community and around the world. We are keeping the momentum going and bringing the issue to the forefront again with another expression of dance and community outreach. Students from Sunny Brae Middle School Glee class will be performing for plaza goers at 2:05, and then we will Drum! Dance! Rise! again at 2:14.
