welcome to bay area rising

Bay Area Rising is an all-volunteer team formed three years ago that is dedicated to the feminist principles of individual empowerment, collective action, and connecting the everyday to the sacred. By combining art, spirituality, and activism, we focus on a performance ritual dedicated to healing the violence against women and girls.

This year we are doubling our commitment to healing the violence by elevating our fundraising efforts to $10,000.

This year Bay Area Rising is sponsoring two new events:

Fundraising Auction and a Rally at Oakland City Hall on February 13th, 2015 at 5:00PM.
