Upachaya Supports One Billion Rising

One Billion Rising

Join Upachaya on Friday, February 14 as we support “One Billion Rising for Justice” through yoga and dance. Our event begins at 9:30 A.M..

This event begins with yoga and includes dance in support of this great cause.

Why is this important? One in every three women on this planet will either be raped, or beaten during their life time. I am one of those statistics, and it is time we work together as a society to change this violence and bring about justice.

Our little event here at Upachaya is only the beginning. It is just to make others aware of this movement and to come together to celebrate our lives, and the choices we have in our lives to help others.

On 14 February 2013, one billion people in 207 countries rose and danced to demand an end to violence against women and girls.

On 14 February 2014*, One Billion Rising for Justice is escalating their efforts, calling on women and men everywhere to RISE, RELEASE, DANCE, and demand JUSTICE!
