To date V-Day Bakersfield has raised over $74,000 for local nonprofits working to end violence against women and girls and has sent 10% of our proceeds over the years to the V-Day Spotlight Campaign helping women all over the world!
This is our 17th year raising money and awareness for local nonprofits and working to end violence against women and girls. Our beneficiaries this year are the Alliance Against Family Violence and Sexual Assault and Kern Coalition Against Human Trafficking and we will also be sending a small donation to The V-Day Spotlight Campaign. This year we are reaching out for this community campaign by traveling to three hot spots in different areas of our community to perform Eve Ensler’s award winning play, The Vagina Monologues.
See the Events menu item for more details.
A global movement to end violence against women and girls.
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 day. We proclaim Valentine's Day as V-Day, to celebrate women and end the violence.
V-Day is a fierce, wild, unstoppable movement and community. Join us!
