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.
FRIENDS: Help Us Fight
Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
