ViWiDA IS RISING AGAINST IMPUNITY #rise2endimpunity

Fighting Violence Against Women/Youth & Underprivileged – Empowering Women and Youth with Education and More!

As we rally to end violence against women, youth and underprivileged; I thank God I am in a land of Liberty. The land of the free and the brave. Laws are enacted to protect us, such as The Violence Against Women Act of 1994 (VAWA). Let Freedom Ring in America.

How fortunate we are! We can complain about racism. We can complain about affirmative action. We can complain about our rights to marry who we want. We can complain about our presidents, and say what we want of him. We can complain because we are FREE to do so; unlike some other people in other countries where the people are oppressed, and have no voice only  tyranny ensue them. So, it feels great to be Free ..LET FREEDOM RING!!….dsWalton

VAWA PASSED! HEARTFELT THANKS TO OUR HEROES WHO ROSE FOR VAWA


The Violence Against Women Act of 1994 (VAWA) is a United States federal law (Title IV, sec. 40001-40703 of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, H.R. 3355) signed as Pub.L. 103–322 by President Bill Clinton on September 13, 1994 (codified in part at 42 U.S.C. sections 13701 through 14040). The Act provides $1.6 billion toward investigation and prosecution of violent crimes against women, imposes automatic and mandatory restitution on those convicted, and allows civil redress in cases prosecutors chose to leave un-prosecuted. The Act also establishes the Office on Violence Against Women within the Department of Justice.

ONE BILLION RISING “Rise Against Impunity”

One Billion Rising for Justice Live in Miami 

 On 14 February 2013, one billion people rose in 207 countries to dance and strike and say no to sexual violence. One Billion Rising was an expression of an urgent and deep desire of women and men across the planet to live without constant threat of violation, rape and attack. – See more at: http://2013.onebillionrising.org/news/entry/rise-against-impunity#sthash.beoPYq1v.dpuf     ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a global call to women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safely in community outside places where they are entitled to justice – courthouses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not. It is a call to survivors to break the silence and release their stories – politically, spiritually, outrageously – through art, dance, marches, ritual, song, spoken word, testimonies and whatever way feels right.

dearall03 One Billion Rising was started in 2012 as part of the V-Day movement. V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. On February 14, 2013, V-Day’s 15th anniversary, activists, writers, workers. thinkers, celebrities and women and men across the world came together to demand an end at last to violence against women. http://www.vday.org/dearall I have listened over these weeks to the stories that have thrown so many of these girls into darkness-stories of a girl whose grandfather raped her and got her pregnant, stories of being exiled and expelled after rapes or even after having babies. Stories of being forced into prostitution and losing parents and living off the streets. http://www.vday.org/dearall.
