On Feb. 22 and 23, 2013, The Advocates will present “V-Day The Advocates 2013.” The event will include a reading of Eve Ensler’s “A Memory, a Monologue, a Rant, and a Prayer”along with a One Billion Rising dance performance by the Dirty Feet Dance Company based in Hailey. The performance will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum, Idaho; doors and no-host bar open at 6:15 p.m.
One Billion Rising [OBR] is an escalation of the V-Day movement. V-Day started 14 years ago to end violence against women. Though there have been many victories, violence against women and girls is still prevalent. In fact, estimates predict that one in three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime.
OBR invites one billion women and those who love them to rise up, dance, and demand an end to this violence.V-Day strives for the world to see the collective strength, the numbers and the solidarity across borders working for this result. Men of all ages are invited and encouraged to support this powerful message. The Advocates invited Dirty Feet Dance Company to join the V-Day event and lead the rise up and dance call to action.
The Advocates V-Day event is an awareness campaign and a benefit for The Advocates. The Advocates is a Wood River Valley non-profit, and its mission is to teach people of all ages how to build and maintain healthy relationships. The Advocates accomplish this through education, shelter, and support services. The Advocates envision a compassionate community, free from emotional, and physical abuse. In the coming year, more than 4,500 community members of all ages will participate in The Advocates' programs.
