one-billion

One Billion Rising: Rise Up Dance 
Sat. Feb. 10, noon at the State Capitol Bldg. 490 Old Santa Fe Trail

Join other pro-woman activists outside the Capitol to dance in celebration of revolution. “We dance because it’s visceral,” the org One Billion Rising writes. “By doing so we get back into our bodies, it connects us to ourselves, we feel the ground beneath us and we can feel the power of the people in front of us and behind us.”

One Billion Rising was created in 2013 in response to the UN statistic that 1 in 3 women will be raped or beaten in their lifetime—that translates, yes, to 1 billion women.

100 Women Who Care in Santa Fe Wed. Feb. 7, from 6-7 pm at the Scottish Rite Temple. 463 Paseo de Peralta. (Arrive at 5 if you’d like a tour of the Temple.) During our one-hour meeting, we’ll put names of local non-profits in a hat and pull out three. Each will have 5 minutes to make a presentation. Then we vote and to whichever one receives the most votes, we write our checks for $100 (or you can share the vote with a friend or friends and write your check for $50 or $25) and together we raise $10,000. We invite you to become part of this powerful group and to have a positive impact on those in need here in the Santa Fe area, without the time-consuming effort we all associate with fundraising. (Yes, it IS possible!) Please invite your friends and spread the word.

To date, we have raised $189,216 for non-profits in Santa Fe!
