November 25th is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence towards Women & Girls, and we will use this day to kick off 16 days of activism for the elimination of violence towards women and girls, globally. On this day, a noon press conference will take place on the steps of San Francisco’s City Hall, immediately followed by a healing ceremony from 1:00-3:00 PM for survivors of violence with a multi arts performance in the esplanade across the street, entitled “They are all our Daughters.”

The press conference will include a Cherokee opening benediction by Nanette Bradley Deetz, proclamations by the office of Mayor Gavin Newsom and Emily M. Murase, PhD, of the San Francisco Department of the Status of Women. Speakers will include City Supervisor David Campos along with Alameda poet laureate Mary Rudge, and MamaCoAtl. The MC will be Nina Serrano.

Chief Luisah Teish and the Women’s Spirituality Program of the Institute for Transpersonal Psychology will lead the ritual healing. The arts performance, “They Are All Our Daughters! /!Todas Son Nuestras Hijas!,” will feature
Judy Grahn, a poet, Mama CoAtl, a singer/song writer, Anne Bluethenthal, a choreographer, Diana Gameros, a musician, and other community artists.
