One Billion Rising beginning on 7 February and continuing throughout the year, activists are RISING to

end violence against women and girls, and calling for a radical shift in consciousness to end the global epidemic of abuse that one in three women face worldwide. That’s ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS.

 

OBR Youth Revolution is an artistic political movement onto itself — determined and led by young women and girls — outspoken, courageous, unafraid, political, creative, tech savvy, current and forward thinking, bringing an exciting layer of One Billion Rising boldly into the future.

 

V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against all women and girls and the planet. V-Day believes that when art and activism come together, they have the power to transform systems and

change culture.  V-Day is a movement and an example of how the power of art can be used as a

liberating tool for transformational holistic education and social justice. 

Voices is a poetic performance piece and artistic campaign. 

Voices will be an offering to our highest selves.
A naming ritual.
To hear ourselves hearing each other.

Young people are entrenched in the world of music and entertainment, performance arts, social media, fashion and sports; Hip Hop is the culture of young people across the African Diaspora of America’s urban youth; Hip Hop has become more than just

a music genre; it is a culture embraced by youth worldwide; it is their way of thinking, dressing, speaking, and behaving.

We believe all youth can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
