WE RISE AGAIN: Dancing & rising against gender violence....We are going to keep on dancing til there ain't no rising left to do!

Last year on 2/14/13, on a very cold and frosty day, over 350 women, girls and boys, and men gathered at the Hennepin County Government Center Plaza in downtown Minneapolis to join the international One Billion Rising movement and dance against violence against women and children. This year we are planning an even bigger day of events.

We humbly ask for your financial support. Our core committee is comprised of three women; we are all volunteers; we are not a non-profit. We are three women who work as a school social worker, elementary teacher and psychotherapist. We believe passionately in the importance of taking an active stand against gender violence and its hetero-normative sexist patriarchal origins. We believe in the strength of grass-roots community organizing and the inclusion of people from all races, ages, genders, sexual orientations, creeds, religious beliefs and non-beliefs, and economic and ability status.  

100% of the money you give goes directly into creating the TC One Billion Rising events. We are hoping for increased publicity, three times as many people, and bus transportation for the student participants. Last year we raised $900. This year we are aiming for $5000.
