What is One Billion Rising?
This event is designed to highlight the problems that women around the world face, particularly with all forms of abuse and the ways each of us can make positive changes. If you would like more information about the worldwide organization, check out onebillionrising.org.
Last year, the event’s theme was Justice, and we held a community event here at the Y with guest speakers Chief David Thompson, (then) Asst. District Attorney Joel Perry, the director of HomeSafe in Springfield and a staff member who was a victim of domestic violence.
This year the focus is on Revolution, highlighting opportunities available to women, including the experience of being a female leader and the issues surrounding women in the workforce.
