We Rise Up

WASHINGTON - Today, MADRE joins all those rising up against violence, as part of V-Day’s 1 Billion Rising campaign.

Every day, our sisters around the world rise. The women of our partner organizations have always used song and dance to denounce violence and to tap into their collective strength and joy. In Nicaragua, Kenya, Haiti, Colombia and more, they embrace creativity to imagine a world without abuse.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Don't Exist.

MADRE is an international women’s human rights organization that partners with community-based women’s groups to advance women’s human rights, challenge injustice and create social change in contexts of war, conflict, disaster and their aftermath. MADRE advocates for a world in which all people enjoy individual and collective human rights; natural resources are shared equitably and sustainably; women participate effectively in all aspects of society; and all people have a meaningful say in policies that affect their lives.
