February 8th & 9th - 7pm
Admission $20/night

Join with us as we present our 7th annual V-DAY/One Billion Rising event and stand up against gender-based violence. Show your support for members of the WWf(a)C and Greater Cincinnati communities as they share poems, stories, rants and memories.

This year's V-DAY event will once again be presented in two evenings with two different series of readers and content. We hope that you'll join us for one or both of these remarkable performances.

Proceeds from this event will directly benefit programs, including writing circles, to help victims of domestic abuse in the Greater Cincinnati area.
