One Billion Rising! I Heart The Truth!

This year, CODEPINK is joining V-Day in its One Billion Rising For Justice campaign! I Heart The Truth addresses the need to RISE for JUSTICE for incarcerated and exiled whistle-blowers who have exposed the truth. Whether it’s releasing the Iraq war logs or documents on NSA domestic spying, the whistle-blowers seeking corporate and government transparency have endured severe consequences.

CODEPINK will RISE this February 14 to celebrate the courage of imprisoned transgender woman Chelsea Manning! We will also RISE for whistle-blowers Edward Snowden, John Kiriakou and Jeremy Hammond. Will you RISE with us?

DANCE REHEARSAL – Break the Chain rehearsals – Venice

Sunday, February 9th 3-4pm at the CODEPINK house, 2010 Linden Ave. Venice, CA 90291. The dance rehearsal will be taught by Hannah Blake, professional dancer and philanthropist. Hannah will also lead us in the dance on V-Day.

“ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a global call to women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safely in community outside places where they are entitled to justice -­‐ courts, police stations, government offices, colleges, work places, military courts, places of worship, homes. It is a call to survivors to break the silence and release their stories – politically, spiritually, outrageously -­‐ through art, dance, marches, ritual, song, spoken word, testimonies and whatever way feels right.”
