February 14 is about more than candy and flowers this year. Share the love with victims of gender-based violence everywhere by being present at the One Billion Rising gathering at River Park Square. One Billion Rising is the V-Day movement’s newest revolution, brewing for the past two years in more than 200 countries and territories to help raise awareness and ultimately end violence against women worldwide. According to the United Nations, one in three women worldwide will be beaten or raped in their lifetime. Rise up and join a local celebration of this global movement with Lutheran Community Services Northwest and the YWCA of Spokane, and learn the dance to “break the chain” of gender-based violence.
