Today I was able to go to a practice for One Billion Rising. It's a movement that calls for an end to violence against women and girls. One of the ways they draw attention to the cause is for people to come together in public places. In our area, we will be dancing on Valentine's Day in our local mall. Here is information from the website:
"In 2016, the theme of Revolution continues with a call to focus on marginalized women and to bring national and international focus to their issues; to bring in new artistic energy; to amplify Revolution as a call for system change to end violence against women and girls; to call on people to rise for others, and not just for ourselves"
I had a wonderful time today with some fantastic dancers at a local dance studio as we learned the dance. Dancing makes me smile and to do it with so many others for a united purpose makes it even more energizing and joyful.
