ONE BILLION RISING – Break the Chains!
Artful Impact and The School of Performing Arts will be supporting a local business and cause. The War Chest is a boutique shop located in downtown Naperville.
Women At Risk, International (WAR, Int’l) is a Grand Rapids-based, nonprofit organization, established to create circles of protection around at-risk women and children. Through culturally sensitive, value-added intervention projects and partnerships, we provide safe places to heal from abuse, trafficking, exploitation, and more. Our passion is to empower survivors to live and work with dignity and hope.
One Billion Rising is an incredible movement designed to raise awareness of the immense issues women face globally, from poverty to trafficking, abuse, maternity care and more. Every year they host the Break the Chains Dance on the weekend of February 14th where men and women alike dance all around the world to stand in solidarity with those suffering and celebrate those who have found the help they desire.
You do not need to be a great dancer – but you must have a passion to stand, clap, or dance (or just come to support) for freedom! Everyone is invited. Wear the color red to celebrate the weekend and the cause. Learn the dance steps ahead of time with the websites listed below.
