Andrea has also worked at The Simpsons, New Line Cinema, Oprah Magazine and other super awesome entertainment companies.

Isabella Grosso is an accomplished dancer with a repertoire in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop and even the mystic moves of Salsa, Tango and the Waltz. She is also a writer with her first memoir coming out in 2013 describing the story of a young woman and her struggle to overcome sexual abuse. She is a dedicated advocate for women's rights and women empowerment, making it an essential part of her life.




Tera "Nova Jade" Greene is an award-winning DJ and film producer, as well as a published writer and poet.  She has helped to organize 3-day women's workshop festivals and recently spoke on a panel about "Feminism" in today's society at UCLA.  Though growing up she lacked women role models, even a mother's presence in the home, she feels it is important to empower women to stand firmly in their identities and create their own HerStory.




theKI is a 10-piece ensemble that fuses pop, jazz and electronic music with modern and ancient wisdom. Featuring conservatory-trained members who have performed with world-class artists, theKI combines beautiful instrumental arrangements with digital grooves to create movement, dance, and transformative moments of inner reflection. Roxie Sakura, lead singer and member of the Greater Los Angeles Chapter USNC for UN Women, through her songwriting is dedicated to shining light on some of the darkest injustices and inner struggles still facing women today. By making darkness conscious, as Carl Jung wrote, theKI exists to expand this awareness by first inspiring and empowering the individual. 

DJ Amara, an international DJ well known in the LGBT community has been a long time supporter of women empowerment movements.  She volunteers her time to DJ and work events such as The Vagina Monologues, and the Asian Pacific Women's Center, a nonprofit dedicated to providing a safe haven and support services for women and children who are survivors of domestic violence.

Erica Gimpel first received international acclaim for her performance as Coco Hernandez on the hit TV series 'Fame'. Since then, Erica has gone on to star in award-winning TV shows including NIKITA, CRIMINAL MINDS, GREYS ANATOMY, HOUSE, ER, VERONICA MARS and most recently TRUE BLOOD.  Another of Ericas roles is as a gifted singer/songwriter. Her riveting live debut CD, 'Spread Your Wings And Fly' has quickly become one of CDBABYS top albums in the Jazz/Pop genre. Ericas song 'Spread Your Wings And Fly' (her anthem to women) is featured in the soon to be released indie film  'Hill and Gully'.

Billboard DJ/Singer/Producer Kelly Divan & Chart topping EDM music artist Sherryce are making their debut as power house DJ/Vocal duo. 'We make a stand to empower women around the world to live their best lives.' Scheduled for their first collaborative release they are excited to perform at LA Rising for Women. www.Sherryce.com
Body Painting by A Window Between Worlds (AWBW), founded in 1991, is the only national non-profit dedicated to using art to end domestic violence. I CAN WE CAN is AWBW'S newest community art project where everyone can lend a hand, literally, to help end abuse. Professional body painters from A Window Between Worlds will transform your reasons for rising into body art. Join with us and create art on your hands as a symbol of solidarity, a commitment that you will do what you can to help end domestic violence and sexual assault
