In 7 Days, 1 Billion Will Rise – A Video Message from Eve
No matter where you are, in a week we will rise together as one.
With the addition of Laos, Liberia, Monaco, and Palestine, we are now up to 197 countries and territories taking part in what will be the largest global day of action the world has ever seen.
In seven days, starting in Samoa, the sun will rise on 14 February, kicking off 48 hours worldwide of striking, dancing, and rising. To send you into your final week of preparations, we share this special video message from Eve:
