About The Event

On 14 February 2014* calling on women and men OF THE NICOLA VALLEY to RISE, RELEASE, DANCE, and demand JUSTICE! ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a global call to women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safely in community outside places where they are entitled to justice – courthouses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not. It is a call to survivors to break the silence and release their stories – politically, spiritually, outrageously – through art, dance, marches, ritual, song, spoken word, testimonies and whatever way feels right. Sign up today online at https://www.onebillionrising.org All are welcome to join us in Spences Bridge to Dance, Drum and sing -speak out against violence against woman. Wear your pink and red colours – bring a drum or just come as you are. Date: Feb 14, 2014 Time: 2:00 p.m. Gathering place: Cooks Ferry Band Bldg. 3691 Deer Ln.
