About The Event
ITINERARY: V-DAY FOR NATALIE
ONE BILLION RISING DANCE
3703 Station Ave
Ashtabula, OH 44004
Organizers: Ruby J. Morgan, Jennie A. Velez-Harris, Rena Velez, Bonnie Thompson
Purpose: Dedicated to Natalie Gilkerson, who was murdered in a violent relationship
One Billion Rising: On February 14, 2013, one billion people in 207 countries rose and danced to demand an end to violence against women and girls.
On February 14, 2014, we are escalating our efforts, calling on women and men everywhere 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.
The itinerary for February 14, 2014, is as follows:
12:00 PM: Set up by friends and family of Natalie
1:00 PM: Registration
2:00 PM: Speakers
3:00 PM: “Break The Chain” dance rehearsal
4:00 PM: “Break The Chain” dance
