Stage a Benefit Event in 2016 - V-Season is Now Open for Registration!
Let V-Season begin –
Beginning today, activists can register to produce a 2016 V-Day benefit production of The Vagina Monologues and/or A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer. The two artistic works will be available free of charge to registered activists producing benefitperformances during the month of February. By focusing the benefit performances during one month - February - we maximize the impact. Already returning organizers in over 130 locations have signed up for the 2016 season.*
Each year, thousands of V-Day benefit events take place produced by volunteer activists in the U.S. and around the world. These efforts have raised consciousness, changed laws to protect women and girls, funded rape crisis centers and domestic violence shelters (inmany cases these much needed funds kept them from closing), educated their communities, and raised over $100 million in urgently needed funds for groups doing the essential work of ending violence and serving survivors and their families.
Since V-Day launched in 1998, activists have also staged their own works, reflecting the voices in their communities. If you would like to foreground new voices in the conversation around ending violence against women, we encourage you to do so by curating stories from your community and creating a new artistic evening that you present separately. Many organizers have done this, both instead of The Vagina Monologues and in addition to The Vagina Monologues. Consider revolutionizing your art and activism by creating new artistic events local writers, activists and artists.
The Revolution continues – One Billion Rising: Rise for Revolution 2016 is an escalation of the first three stages of our campaign. We've danced, demanded justice, and demanded changes. This year we are radicalizing our actions- enlarging, deepening and expanding the revolution. Radically shifting consciousness with braver, bolder, more creative and determined actions that focus on the most marginalized women and girls to bring about true, long lasting change.<
