On 14 February 2014, Lake County will join women and men from all over the world as part of global ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE initiative. Last year, over 400 people moved the needle on the issue of violence against women and girls right here in Lake County, IL. Their stand for justice this year will press it front and center.
Once again, they will offer a Women’s Resource Fair as well as dances, readings, and speakers on women’s empowerment. They would like you to be part of the event, so come join them and bring your friends
When: Friday, Feb 14th at 6;30pm
Where: Round Lake Beach Cultural and Civic Center 2007 Municipal Way, Round Lake Beach
Why: To STAND, To RELEASE, To RISE! To be part of a Global Gathering of Women and the Men Who Love Them bringing greater awareness to the evolution of
women’s rights around the world.
