"V-DAY, the global movement to end violence against all women and girls (cisgender, transgender, and those who hold fluid identities that are subject to gender based violence) has seen it's work evolve over the past three years. The rise of misogynist, authoritarian regimes all over the world - from the United States to the Philippines, India to Brazil - has recalibrated our work, further escalating the urgency with which we feel compelled to fight for gender, climate, economic, and racial justice. We are in the midst of a rising tide of right-wing nationalism, white supremacy, fascism, tyranny, hatred of and fear of immigrants, misogyny, femicide, homophobia, transphobia, corporate greed and climate destruction. We cannot beat these violators on their terms. We will never be the cruel, discompassionate, greedy, or murderous. We cannot let ourselves be changed by or sunk in their cynicism, hatred, divisions and destruction.
WHAT WE CAN DO IS REMEMBER WE ARE THE MANY AND WE CAN RAISE THE VIBRATION THROUGH ACTION, ART, CONNECTION, IMAGINATION AND LOVE."
