About The Event

We are rising up in the name of Love ! Join us in playing a part in this worldwide movement to bring awareness to ending violence against women. We will gather together at the Gazebo in downtown Takoma Park, donning our tutus and beating our drums in solidarity with women and men all over the world who are rising up simultaneously !! Men are highly encouraged and welcome to join us in support- no tutu necessary unless you really want to wear one :). We will kick things off with the Bele Bele Rhythm Collective at noon. http://www.drumlady.com/projects/bele-bele-rhythm-collective/ from 12- 12:30. Then we will march down the main street (Carroll Ave ) for two blocks, to the Electric Maid - right near Takoma Park metro. From 1-2 pm we will have a brief ceremony honoring the strength of women And the strong, awakened men who love and support us as well.. and more drumming and dancing will ensue !! Instruments of any kind are welcome. We will have some to share too. Tutus are highly encouraged and anything of a ridiculous nature. Event is FREE !!
