1 Billion Rising


Join us for this FREE EVENT! We will join our fellow risers around the world on February 14th 2015 @ 12:30 p.m. to Rise for Revolution. We will gather on the Royal Gorge Bridge in Canon City, Colorado, USA and dance to "Break the Chain".

1 in 3 women across the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. That’s ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. Every February, we rise – in hundreds of countries across the world – to show the world what one billion looks like and shine a light on the rampant impunity and injustice that survivors most often face.  We rise through dance to express joy and community and and celebrate the fact that we have not been defeated by this violence. We rise to show we are determined to create a new kind of consciousness – one where violence will be resisted until it is unthinkable.

Mission Statement

To empower women to improve their status through education, economic stability, health and wellness, to contribute to our community through local and international projects, advocacy and through contributions, and to further the mission of Zonta International.
