I am raising money for V-Day, a global movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions.

I am performing in San Francisco's V-Day show of "A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant, A Prayer." It's an incredible collection of writings inspired to end international violence against women and girls. We are hoping to raise as much as possible, every dollar counts. Please join me in fighting this fight and taking a stand against violence.

All proceeds will benefit:

San Francisco Women Against Rape (www.sfwar.org)

The Riley Center (www.rileycenter.org)

National V-Day Spotlight: Women in the Congo (www.vday.org)


With love, thanks and hope,

Risa

 

The mission of the V-day campaign is this:

V-Day is an organized response against violence toward women.

V-Day is a vision: We see a world where women live safely and freely.

V-Day is a demand: Rape, incest, battery, genital mutilation and sexual slavery must end now.

V-Day is a spirit: We believe women should spend their lives creating and thriving rather than surviving or recovering from terrible atrocities.

V-Day is a catalyst: By raising money and consciousness, it will unify and strengthen existing anti-violence efforts. Triggering far-reaching awareness, it will lay the groundwork for new educational, protective, and legislative endeavors throughout the world.

V-Day is a process: We will work as long as it takes. We will not stop until the violence stops.

V-Day is a day. We proclaim Valentine's Day as V-Day, to celebrate women and end the violence.

V-Day is a fierce, wild, unstoppable movement and community.
