One Billion Rising Española

Join NNMC, Tewa Women United, Four Bridges Traveling Permaculture Institute, ENLACE, Circle of Life, Española Main Street Theater and ¡El Tiempo! Nuevo Mexico in celebrating:

ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a call to women, men, and youth around the world to gather safely on 14 February 2014 outside places where they are entitled to justice – court houses, 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.
The campaign is a recognition that we cannot end violence against women without looking at the intersection of poverty, racism, war, the plunder of the environment, capitalism, imperialism, and patriarchy. Impunity lives at the heart of these interlocking forces.
