“One Billion Rising for Justice” is an international movement that in 2013 involved a billion people in 207 countries who used music and dance in a wide variety of observances that demanded an end to violence against women and girls.
On Feb. 14, the international observance involves Española, a community that for the first time has scheduled morning and evening events. Other New Mexico towns and cities, including Santa Fe and Taos, also have programs planned.
Internationally-known Native American women such as Winona LaDuke, of Honor the Earth in Callaway, Minn., and Corrine Sanchez, executive director of Tewa Women United in Española, will be the speakers for the Española event.
They will highlight the international, as well as local, state and national efforts to address gender violence. Individuals and organizations in Española have been working behind the scenes for decades.
“It’s time that this important work receives the public acknowledgement it deserves,” said Corrine Sanchez who predicts that 2014’s high-profile events in Española will be the first of other future events of this type.
