One Billion Rising Victoria Update

Friends, out team of 2013 OBR organizers, Victoria Women’s Sexual Assault Centre, Victoria Women’s Transition House and Island Sexual Health Society, met recently to talk about One Billion Rising 2014. We were thrilled with the turnout and energy of last years event! Unfortunately, as non-profits with limited resources and critical programs to run, we have decided we simply do not have the resources to host the event again in 2014.

The Victoria Community showed great passion for the event and we are hopeful folks will step forward to organize a local event for the coming year.

To see what is happening in with events in our region and beyond and to get more details about updates and plans for 2014, please visit

We encourage folks to post links on the Victoria Rising facebook page to any local event planned or to any facebook pages or events in the next week or two. We will be shutting down the page on November 1.

Many thanks!
