The local 1 Billion Rising event was held this past Saturday, February 13, at the Women’s Center. This global event is held to bring about awareness and help end violence against women. A staggering 1 in 3 women and girls will be raped or beaten in their lifetime. We would like to thank all those who turned out on this very busy weekend to help support this Rising!
To those who helped put this all together, The NMU Student Leadership Program, selling t-shirts to support Harbor House, Econo Foods and Huron Mountain Bakery for some delicious cookies and to the women who helped to organize this event Janet, Kathy and Jane without volunteers and supporters like all of you we would not be able to do this so, a huge Thank you!
