Dancing to End Violence

Posted: Updated:

People worldwide, including in Northern Michigan, are dancing to end violence against women and girls.

One billion rising is an event organized by a group called V-Day International, which seeks to end violence against women worldwide.

Many supporters showed up to dance in Harrison this afternoon and join the cause.

V-Day states that one in three women worldwide - or one billion - will be raped or beaten in her lifetime.

Today, one billion people will rise up, dance and demand an end to that violence.
