"We have always taken seriously One Billion Rising’s call to love, call to celebrate, call to drum and dance for the new world we are creating. And that’s what we did on Saturday, with thousands of groups around the world. Organizers focused on the impact of structural violence in our local communities as violence against women and girls, the Black Lives Matter movement, and creating a huge celebration of life, fierceness, and resilience." Bay Area Rising Organizer Carolyn Hunt on the Artistic Uprising event in Oakland featuring local musicians, performers and community groups. #1BillionRising WATCH an excerpt of the evening's powerful speech by Alicia Garza, co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement: READ the full blog with photos: http://bit.ly/1LtT7MS

"Our girls joined millions of activists in over 200 countries to rise for revolution in this year's One Billion Rising Denver 2016! One Billion Rising is a call to action based 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 more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. Girls learned the choreography to this flash mob dance at Girls Incorporated of Metro Denver and marched along Denver's 16th Street Mall to the steps of Capitol Hill this afternoon." - Girls Incorporated of Metro Denver (Photos by Carrie Webber Photography) #1BillionRising #Rise4Revolution

"We are dancing for Revolution because we want to express our concerns. We want to tell the people that our situation as Lumads is the same with the other indigenous people in the world especially the women. If the people feel the crisis in the urban areas, how much more in the rural and remote areas where our Lumad brothers and sisters are deprived with their basic needs which should be provided by the government. During military operations in our communities, many women experienced abuse and our rights were violated. We experienced countless of harassments done by the military and para-military. We were not treated as human beings. That is why we join the One Billion Rising for Revilution with our families at UCCP Haran Evacuation Center to demand the government to respect our rights, give us education and bring back peace in our communities" - Jinky Malibato, 15, a lumad bakwit from Sitio Muling, Barangay Gupitan, Kapalong in Davao del Norte. #1BillionRising #Rise4Revolution #Rise2March8
