One Billion Rising at Carondelet
Now in their fifth year of celebrating the international One Billion Rising mass action, Carondelet is taking on a larger role this year as a host site. Members of the community-at-large are invited to campus to join with students and faculty as they rise in solidarity to end violence against women. In addition to a number of student-focused events beginning on Thursday, February 9, they will also host a student-led community-wide event, "Carondelet Rising: Empowering Women to be Agents of Change" on Monday, February 13 from 5:30pm to 7pm.
The program will include guest speakers, including Concord Mayor Laura Hoffmeister, engaging activities, dancing, a "Rise Up" performance by the nationally acclaimed dance team, informational booths, and more.
