Arrived safely in Toronto and looking forward to sharing my voice in the One Billion Rising Toronto Public Rally today at Yonge-Dundas Square.
“We come together at Yonge-Dundas Square to show our solidarity, to take up space, to add our own voices and to send a clear message, from both women and men, that violence against women will not be tolerated in Toronto or anywhere else in the world. We will shake Toronto into awareness with our music and dance and with our bodies and our presence.” Mehrak Mehrvar, international women’s rights advocate and Chair of One Billion Rising Toronto’s Organizing Committee
One Billion Rising Toronto Public Rally at Yonge-Dundas Square (across from the Eaton Centre) on April 28 from 5:30 to 7 pm. Admission is free.
