The University of Hawaiʻi is joining the One Billion Rising initiative this February 10th, 2016 to take a stand against violence towards women and girls. Hoʻōla Nā Pua will be in attendance, and we encourage you to be too.

When: Wednesday – February 10th, 2016 – 3-7:00 pm

Volunteers are encouraged to learn the dance “Break the Chain” (YouTube video) to join the flash mob at the beginning of the event.

Host organization PAU Violence is joining the One Billion Rising Revolution once again this year to raise awareness about the one billion women and girls who experience abuse each day around the world. We would like to invite all of our supporters and volunteers to attend this event and show your support for this campaign.

Hoʻōla Nā Pua will have a booth at the event to spread our mission of Health, Education, Advocacy, and Reintegration in concerns to the sex trafficking of underage females in Hawai’i.

This is a free event. So put on your dancing shoes,  learn the steps, and join us in supporting this anti-violence movement. Even if you do not feel like dancing, join us anyway to show your support.

There will be a sign-in sheet at our booth for our volunteers, so please stop by if you do attend. We hope to see you there!

Registered volunteers: We are looking for 2-4 volunteers to help staff the information/education table at this event.  Volunteers staffing the table must have been through the Ambassador Training which was offered in August, October and December 2015.  Please email volunteer@hoolanapua.org to sign up.  Mahalo.
