One Billion Rising - North County Santa Barbara
One Billion Rising first began in 2013 with the fierce struggle against sexual and physical violence – taking on the advocacy against rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation and sex trafficking that V-Day campaigns over 18 years have been at the forefront of. Over the last four years, as One Billion Rising has grown and the local campaigns deepened, it has also brought in economic violence and the violence of poverty, racial and gender violence.
This year, One Billion Rising Revolution is giving sharper focus and visibility to the exploitation of women, and to harnessing even stronger global solidarity to demand an end to violence in all forms.
Human Trafficking is a major issue in Santa Barbara County and especially in the north county. The Center is in in the forefront in treating and responding to victims of all ages who have experience this trauma.
We ask you to attend our celebration in solidarity with One Billion Rising worldwide and "Strike! Rise! and DANCE!"
