Underground Railroad is an affiliated member of the Saginaw County Sexual Violence Prevention (SVP) Team. One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action event to end violence against women and girls. This campaign launched on Valentine’s Day 2012 where people across the world came together to dance and stand in solidarity against violence against women. 1 in 3 women across the planet will be abused at some point in her lifetime. That’s ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS.
This flash-mob style awareness event takes place every February. It is open to all ages, genders, and experience levels, and there’s no cost to participate. Practice sessions are held in advance of the event, or interested parties can learn the steps on their own at www.youtube.com
