WWf(a)C V-Day 2020
One Billion Rising: RAISE YOUR VOICE

Two powerful evenings of strength, truth-telling, courage, and hope marked the eighth annual V-Day event at Women Writing for (a) Change. On February 21 and 22, local writers shared essays, poems, stories and song in conjunction with the V-Day/One Billion Rising* movement, which strives to bring awareness, energy and financial support to the fight against gender-based violence.
Much gratitude to WWf(a)C facilitator and poet Laurie Lambert who has organized and directed these programs each year. A huge thanks to each of the 45 writers and readers of all genders  who bravely shared their words in these diverse and transformative evenings.  The event proceeds of $3,160 will support programs, including writing circles, for those who have experienced domestic abuse.

*WeRISE to end rape, battery, incest, sexual harassment, female genital mutilation, sexual slavery and trafficking, child marriage, femicide, sexual, gender and reproductive oppression, violence towards LGBTQIA+ communities. VDay.org
