NAPA EMERGENCY WOMEN’S SERVICES (NEWS) JOINS GLOBAL CAMPAIGN FEBRUARY 14, 2014

FEB. 1, 2013, NAPA, CA: On February 14, 2014, at 12 noon, Napa Emergency Women’s Services will join with activists around the world for ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE. The campaign will build upon the energy and momentum that was created on February 14, 2013 when one billion activists in 207 countries and territories came together to rise, strike, and dance, in the biggest mass action in human history, to demand an end to violence against women and girls.

This year, we will focus on the issue of justice for all survivors of gender violence, and ending the rampant impunity that prevails globally. ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a call to women, men, and youth around the world to gather safely on February14, 2014 outside places where they are entitled to justice – court houses, 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.

The Napa Rising will take place in front of the Napa County Criminal Courthouse (corner of Third & Main Streets, Downtown Napa), where we will Rise for Justice at 12 noon on February 14. Zumba Instructor D.J. Lipton will lead the dance to the song “Break the Chain.” Arrive at 11:45am if you would like to practice the dance beforehand.

To learn more about One Billion Rising for Justice Napa call (707) 252-3687 or e-mail NEWS at info@napanews.org.

About One Billion Rising
One Billion Rising was the biggest mass action in human history. The campaign began as a call to action based on the staggering UN statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. On 14 February 2013, people across the world came together to strike, dance, and RISE in defiance of the injustices women suffer, demanding an end at last to violence against women. Over 10,000 events took place on the ground and the campaign took over media and social media worldwide for 48 hours, trending in 7 countries – 4 times in the US alone. The wildly successful grassroots campaign was covered widely by media in all corners of world including The New York Times, The Guardian, NPR, and many more. www.onebillionrising.org
