The VDay Warriors of Lawrence, Massachusetts continue their good fight of ending violence against women this Friday, April 22 and Saturday, April 23 at the Claddagh Pub at 399 Canal Street!
Directed by Elizabeth Delgado and Yaneris Collado, who earlier this year brought One Billion Rising to the City of Lawrence, your $15 admission guarantees you a night of enjoying an amazing production of The Vagina Monologues and the goodwill of supporting the event’s 2016 Beneficiaries: BACA, Delamano, Health Quarters & YWCA of Greater Lawrence. All proceeds will be received by these organizations!
Also! Earlier this year, the VDay Warriors hosted a Warrior Art Party created to generate “healing through art and sisterhood.” The artistic results of this evening will be displayed at The Vagina Monologues production as a bonus exhibit, “Our Bodies, Our Revolutions”
The shows begin at 7:00 p.m. and doors will open at 6:00 p.m. both nights for food, drinks, treats and raffles!
The Word and Mission of the VDay Warriors:
V-Day is an organized response against violence toward women.
V-Day is a vision: We see a world where women live safely and freely.
V-Day is a demand: Rape, incest, battery, genital mutilation and sexual slavery must end now.
V-Day is a spirit: We believe women should spend their lives creating and thriving rather than surviving or recovering from terrible atrocities.
V-Day is a catalyst: By raising money and consciousness, it will unify and strengthen existing anti-violence efforts. Triggering far-reaching awareness, it will lay the groundwork for new educational, protective, and legislative endeavors throughout the world.
V-Day is a process: We will work as long as it takes. We will not stop until the violence stops.
V-Day is a fierce, wild, unstoppable movement and community. Join us!
