On Valentines Day, 1998, Tony Award winning Playwright, activist, performer, and icon, Eve Ensler began a movement to end violence against women and girls, called “V-Day.” Today, all around the world, you can find different cultures, races, and faces joining various events to promote awareness, raise money, and lift spirits centered on this issue. A wide number of benefit performances and events are held throughout the year, totaling to 5,800 V-Day events annually.

At exactly 2:14pm on V-Day, Love Park will be filled with fearless individuals ready to STRIKE, RISE, and DANCE to end violence against women.
