At the Feb. 12 services Rev. Rick Davis will preach about the problem of domestic violence in preparation for the One Billion Rising rally two days later. Violence against women is a pervasive problem all over the globe. One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action to end violence against women. On Tuesday, Feb. 14 at noon, a rally will be held at the Oregon State Capitol in downtown Salem.
Activists will join with others around the world to raise awareness, end violence and to demand justice. Performers include Tippy Toe Dance Studio and Rich McCloud plus speakers. It’s estimated that one billion women will be beaten or raped in their lifetimes. Join us for the Feb. 12 services and for the rally on Feb. 14.
