For the second consecutive year on Valentine's Day, One Billion Rising for Justice called on a billion people worldwide to dance in solidarity, create awareness and take action to end violence against women and girls. It is also a call to survivors to make their stories known through art, dance, marches, ritual, song, spoken word and testimonials. More than 600 people attended last year's event in Fort Wayne.
