Bay Area Rising presents:

A multi-media performance and fundraiser to celebrate women, girls, and their communities

Performances by the hip hop goddess MEDUSA, SKIP THE NEEDLE, and a speech by the co-founder of Black Lives Matter, ALICIA GARZA.

Performance also includes local drummers AFIA WALKING TREE AND FRIENDS, participatory flashmob dance, and more.

This is the fourth year that the Bay Area has joined thousands of cities all over the world for V-Day's One Billion Rising, the largest global action to end violence against women and girls in history.

"In some of the worst times we've ever seen, the BEST is rising and coming together in Oakland: activists, artists, advocates, spiritual leaders, revolutionaries, dreamers...from the unimaginable horror comes crazy, radical, inspiring, brilliant love. Don't miss it."

--Eve Ensler
