One Billion Rising

Written by: Miranda Depkon 

 In Feb. 2020, One Billion Rising campaigned to bring awareness to ending sexual and physical violence against women. On Valentine’s Day in 2012, the campaign started by people rising and dancing to get the public’s attention. Today, women all over the world are still faced with violence – One Billion Rising calls people to rise to end rape, incest, sexual harassment, sex trafficking, oppression, and violence against LGBTQ+ people.  

Looking at the campaign myself, I am amazed by how much they have accomplished over the last nine years. Even if you are not sure what you could do as just one person for this cause, head over to OneBillionRising.org and educate yourself on the problems they want to end. Even if it doesn’t happen to you or someone you know, it still happens all over the world. Join them in the rise for revolution.
