To date V-Day Bakersfield has raised over $57000 for local nonprofits working to end violence against women and girls.
V-Day Bakersfield 2017 The Vagina Monologues raised $9836 before expenses! We will be sending checks to Alliance Against Family Violence and Sexual Assault and Kern Coalition Against Human Trafficking this week as well as sending a donation to The V-Day Spotlight Campaign.
A global movement to end violence against women and girls.
V-Day is a vision: We see a world where women live safely and freely.
V-Day is a demand: Rape, incest, battery, genital mutilation and sexual slavery must end now.
V-Day is a spirit: We believe women should spend their lives creating and thriving rather than surviving or recovering from terrible atrocities.
V-Day is a catalyst: By raising money and consciousness, it will unify and strengthen existing anti-violence efforts. Triggering far-reaching awareness, it will lay the groundwork for new educational, protective, and legislative endeavors throughout the world.
V-Day is a process: We will work as long as it takes. We will not stop until the violence stops.
V-Day is a day. We proclaim Valentine's Day as V-Day, to celebrate women and end the violence.
V-Day is a fierce, wild, unstoppable movement and community. Join us!
