One Billion Rising Flash Mob

Location: Campus Center Plaza

One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history. The campaign, launched on Valentine’s Day 2012, began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that one in three women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at seven billion, this adds up to more than one billion women and girls.

Throughout the first three years of One Billion Rising, activists have used “Break The Chain” (flash mob dance) as an integral and creative aspect of their Rising events. As the campaign’s anthem the lyrics and the signature moves brought over one billion people together to rise and dance. It serves to express the call for global solidarity to end violence against women. This will be the fourth year that the 1BR flash mob dance will be held at UH Hilo. All members of the UH community and general public are encouraged to participate
