One Billion Rising - RISE NYC
Hammerstein Ballroom, NYC
February 2013

One Billion Rising’s February 14, 2013 campaign was the first of its kind from V-Day, inviting one billion people to walk out, dance, rise up, and demand and end to violence against women and girls.

Agent of Change served as New York City’s regional manager for this event, spearheading development and execution of unique risings throughout all fiveboroughs, including dance parties, theatrical expressions, education-based seminars, and peer-to-peer engagement. Agent of Change also served as event producer for RISE NYC, the celebratory dance party held at Hammerstein Ballroom on Valentine’s Day evening, attended by nearly 2,000 members and featuring Glenn Close, Rosario Dawson, Kathy Najimy, Kate Clinton, and more, as well as music from DJ Beverly Bond and DJ Hesta Prynn.
