One Billion Rising | TORONTO to Rise & Dance for Justice

April 28 2014

Dundas Square, Toronto


Flashmob followed by guest speakers including Eve Ensler and Glen Canning


From the Facebook Event page:

One Billion Rising Toronto is part of a global movement to end violence against women founded by author of The Vagina Monologues and activist Eve Ensler. She will be in Toronto to RISE with us.


On April 28, 2014, Torontonians will Rise, Release and Dance at Yonge-Dundas Square (5:30 - 7:00 PM) as an act of unity, demonstrate to women the commonality of our struggles and our power in numbers express what justice means to each of us and refuse to accept violence against women and girls. We will focus on the issue of justice for all survivors of gender violence, and ending the rampant impunity that prevails globally.


We will Shake Toronto to Break the Chain!
