One Billion Rising

Social Work Committed to Social Justice Issues in Supporting One Billion Rising

On February 10, 2015, students and faculty from the Division of Social Work participated in history's largest global activity to end violence against women and girls.  One Billion Rising mobilized over a billion people worldwide in 207 countries to strike, dance, and RISE against violence and structures such as poverty, political repression, and religious marginalization that work together to maintain violence against women and girls.

Students gained the invaluable experience of working in a community to oppose a force greater than any one individual. Due to the uniqueness of our outreach program, social work students from across the state empowered their communities to join the global campaign.  Wyoming campaigns were held on the UW campus, public schools, a children's group home, as well as private businesses.

One student wrote of her experience:

"There were women in countries that were speaking out who could have put their lives in danger and they did it anyway.  These women inspire me and give me strength and a passion for continuing to work for these causes.  I wish that I had the strength of these women who have already found their voice and I will keep pushing until I find my voice."
