On Valentine's Day February 14, please join us at noon in downtown Los Altos for our "Women Rising in Los Altos” event. If you’re hungry, you can order lunch, a snack, or just coffee/tea.
February 14 is the day of One Billion Rising (http://onebillionrising.org),
a day on which one billion women all around the world will stand up, walk out, dance, or take to the streets in response to this statistic:
1 in 3 women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime.
On this day, WOMEN~SV, in collaboration with: 1) the Cardea Center for Women; 2) At The Well; 3) Women and Money: Lifting the Fog Salon; 4) Calling out the Brilliance of Women, and other local women’s groups are inviting supportive women and men in our community to rise up with people all around the world in celebration of our strength, hope, courage, power--and love! We also invite you to join with us in affirming our commitment to work together towards a world in which every woman and child lives in safety, peace, and freedom.
Bring a poem, a song, a flower, or valentine to share what healthy love means to you. Is it respect, forgiveness, patience, compassion, the sharing of hopes, and dreams? The sharing of power, wealth, responsibility? What does it mean to you?
Bring something to share or just bring yourself. But do join us! Because it's an important day, an historic day, the day the tide turns and women rise up to show the world the meaning of true love.
WOMEN ~SV is a program of the Los Altos Community Foundation.
