SL: One Billion Rising Campaign

Good Sunday everyone!


One Billion Rising in Second Life invites YOU to stand with ONE voice for an important Campaign.


I Rise! Is the heart, soul and foundation of the mass call to action of the One Billion Rising Revolutionary Campaign, founded on February 14, 2012. To best understand the significance of this monumental show of solidarity, I'll share the description via the website:


"One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action to end violence against women (cisgender, transgender, and those who hold fluid identities that are subject to gender-based violence) in human history. (The reality that): 1 in 3 women across the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. That’s ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. Every February, we rise – in countries across the world – to show our local communities and the world what one billion looks like and shine a light on the rampant impunity and injustice that survivors most often face. We rise through dance to express joy and community and celebrate the fact that we have not been defeated by this violence. We rise to show we are determined to create a new kind of consciousness – one where violence will be resisted until it is unthinkable."


This declaration has inspired survivors, as well as supporters to Rise and we invite YOU to take a stand TODAY, in the SL: One Billion Rising Campaign. Through the eye of your lens, we're encouraging you to capture the spirit of this cause either through the perspective of one suffering at the hands of or rising/overcoming the suffering to live again. We encourage you to visit the OBR website, as well as the curated Pinterest, linked below to inspire your image. We understand the sensitive nature of this Campaign and the impact these images may provoke. However, in perusing of the website, we're certain you'll be empowered by the images of celebration, the marches and most of all, the courage, love as well as staggering rally of humanity against injustice.


EVERYONE is welcomed to participate as the Second Life One Billion Rising is a 24 hour, Multi Sim Event featuring live music, Poetry, dancing, 2D and 3D Art exhibits. Please read over the guidelines below and RISE with us in ONE voice on Friday, February 14th!
