About One Billion Rising

One Billion Rising collections oral histories, photographs, and ephemera from the annual One Billion Rising march in Denver, Colorado. One Billion Rising is a an international campaign committed to raising awareness of and helping to end acts of violence against women. 

From the One Billion Rising website:

"One Billion Rising’s decentralized model of grassroots activism: each One Billion Rising location applies the 2017 call to action in their local context. Using dance as a form of protest – events, rallies, flash mobs, artistic uprisings, panel discussions, and concerts are scheduled on college campuses, in community centers, state houses, churches, in the streets, everywhere."

This collection currently holds materials from the 2017 One Billion Rising, and will add material from future events as they occur.
