One Billion Rising with WRAP – Jackson, TN
For every One Billion assaulted, One Billion must RISE!! Women, girls, men and boys. Please join us from 11:30am until 12:30pm on Friday, February 13 at City Hall in Jackson, TN. Beginning at 11:30am, we will meet outside of City Hall and rise together in dance to the official One Billion Rising music. At noon, we will march in unity to demand an end to violence in our city! 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.
