McPherson Rising will join with activists around the world for ONE BILLION RISING at noon Thursday in Memorial Park.


ONE BILLION RISING began as a call to action based on the statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than 1 billion women and girls. On Thursday, V-Day’s 15th anniversary, McPherson Rising will join activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities, and women and men across the world as they express their outrage.


McPherson will have a small gathering with a couple of speakers to give more information about the McPherson area.
