AUNE Participates in the One Billion Rising Revolution

One Billion 2016

On Tuesday, February 9, AUNE Dance Movement Therapy students will dance to express joy and community and celebrate the expectation that together, violence can be defeated. The gathering is in support of One Billion Rising, a global movement bringing attention to the fact that 1 in 3 women across the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime—that’s one billion women and girls. Others are invited to join the dancers, to rise as a show of determination to create a new kind of consciousness—one where violence will be resisted until it is unthinkable. On this same day, people around the world will rise through dance to express rage against injustices, and the power of global solidarity and collective action.

In addition to the dance, all are encouraged to draw or write their thoughts on a community mural on display February 3, 4, and 9.  A bake sale will also be held on February 3, with items for sale baked by staff and students, to raise funds for the local organization, Monadnock Center for Violence Protection.
