Our stories have been buried, denied, erased, altered, and minimized by patriarchal systems that allow impunity to reign. Justice begins when we speak, release, and acknowledge the truth in solidarity and community. ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is an invitation to break free from confinement, obligation, shame, guilt, grief, pain, humiliation, rage, and bondage.
The campaign is a recognition that we cannot end violence against women without looking at the intersection of poverty, racism, war, the plunder of the environment, capitalism, imperialism, and patriarchy. Impunity lives at the heart of these interlocking forces.
It is a call to bring on revolutionary justice.
Begin to imagine what Rising for Justice looks like for you, your community, your city, your country.
*Attention Canadian Activists
In Canada the Annual Women’s Memorial March for The Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, which has been taking place for twenty two years, is held every February 14th to honor and grieve for the thousands of women who are still missing or who have been murdered. We deeply respect the Women’s Memorial Marches and are asking all of our One Billion Rising Canada organizers to NOT DO their Rising events on February 14th. Instead we are asking you to hold your One Billion Rising events on March 8th, International Women’s Day. Please visit www.womensmemorialmarch.wordpress.com to learn more about the Women’s Memorial Marches.
