It’s a REVOLUTION! Today Super Bowl XLVII will be played in New Orleans, with 110+ million TV viewers from around the world tuning in to what may be the most watched American television broadcast event of the year.
We saw an interview on CNN this week talking about guns in America that touched upon the violence earlier this year that plagued the NFL. As we get ready for One Billion Rising on February 14 — in fact we had our first flash mob rehearsal yesterday — we wanted to highlight the role men have in ending violence against women by sharing an interview with two-time Super Bowl Champion Jarvis Green.
Green, a defensive end who formerly played with the New England Patriots and is now with the Houston Texans is making his voice heard for #MenRising in “I Am Rising” (see below) and sat down for an interview with Carole Bebelle, a V-Day activist and Co-Founder of Ashe Cultural Arts Center in New Orleans, to talk about why men too should be involved in this important campaign.
We encourage you to watch, share, and help us make Super Bowl Sunday be about more than a championship; help us make it part of the revolution to end violence against women!
One of every three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime. That’s one billion mothers, daughters, sisters, partners, and friends violated. To find and participate in a rising event in your community, visit onebillionrising.org.
