Center for Safety & Change (formerly Rockland Family Shelter) Invites Rocklander’s to its’ “Rockland Rising” Event to Commemorate the One Billion Rising Campaign
-- Community Encouraged to Particpate in Flash Mob Dance at Palisades Mall February 14th--
Center for Safety & Change will join with activists around the globe in recognizing the One Billion Rising dance movement by hosting a flash mob dance at the Palisades Mall on Thursday, February 14th.
The “Rockland Rising” flash mob is the Center’s event to mark the 15th anniversary of the V-Day organization, which works internationally to end violence against women and girls, and was founded by playwright, author and activist Eve Ensler. One Billion Rising began on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to one billion women and girls.
“Rockland Rising” is open to women and men of all ages—no prior dance experience is necessary. For those interested, dance lessons will be given prior to the event. Participants should arrive at 5pm in front of the H&M Department Store on February 14th, which is located on the first floor of the mall. A $5.00 donation is suggested.
