To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Vagina Monologues, author Eve Ensler created “1 Billion Rising”. She’s asking 1 billion women & men across the globe to dance in the streets, in their workplaces, schools or homes to raise awareness about violence against women and to celebrate the work we are all doing to end this violence. Check out their website. It’s pretty neat! www.onebillionrising.org
We’re answering the “call” in St. John’s Centre and invite you to join us at “1 Billion Rising St. John’s”, an indoor community bazaar! Starting at 4pm, there’ll be information booths, food by the Mulicultural Women’s community, raffles, auctions, entertainment, and dancing with the Salty Dolls starting at 7pm.
Open to the public, admission is free! Something for everyone!!
Save the date for dancing: Thursday, Feb 14th at the Knights of Columbus, St. Clare Ave, 4 pm to 10 pm. For more info contact us at 729-2638. Read the poster here.
