First of all thank you very much for taking an interest in ENDING violence! This is a tremendous step in the right direction. Now to end the secrecy…
We invite you to be a part of the UNC V-Day Flash Mob!
Friday February 14, 2014 at 12:12pm, in the University Center.
Please feel free to spread the word and get others involved but do not spoil the element of surprise. Participants will get a free t-shirt as well as making history as being part of the second ever One Billion Rising Revolution at the University of Northern Colorado.
One in three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her life.
One billion violated is an atrocity.
One billion dancing is a revolution.
What can we do about it?
We can stand together and rise to be part of a revolution 1 billion and strong. We at UNC can join a movement to end it, a movement that is spreading not only nationwide but worldwide. We are an institution of future leaders and imparters of the world. Why wait? RISE, RELEASE, DANCE and demand an end to violence. We can make a change, today!
Learn the Dance
Volunteer students and members of the Northern Colorado Community will dance in the UC at 12:12pm in a flash mob to the song “Break the Chain” with the official One Million Rising chorography.
It takes a tremendous amount of courage to stand up and dance, and it is for an incredible cause. The dance goes in alignment with the purpose of V-Day. The violence towards women today usually involves the body. Through dance we are reclaiming our bodies and using them to strike out and rise to stop the atrocities. Dance and music are powerful, universal languages of healing and hope.
The dance is great and fun for people of all abilities. If you are a dancing pro or if you have never danced before you can be empowered! We ask that if you participate you try to come to at least one rehearsal. There will be several rehearsal practice sessions taking place at the Woman’s Resource Center located at 1915 10th Ave. Greeley, CO 80639 during February 3rd - 12th (See the practice session schedule below.)
For the most part you can learn the moves at home, on your own time. You and your friends can follow this link to the official how to video:
