The Power of Love

The Power of Love, Sarasota’s Second Annual V-Day Event, will be celebrated on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2015 from 1-4 PM at The Out-of-Door Academy in Lakewood Ranch. Sponsored locally by Tervis, the Peace Education and Action Center, and The Red Couch, V-Day is an international movement to raise awareness about violence against girls and women—one of the hottest topics on the global table. With the tagline "Drum, Dance & Rise," The Power of Love and other V-Day events worldwide will focus on creating and envisioning brave and radical artistic initiatives to usher in a new revolutionary world of equality, dignity and freedom for all women and girls.



This Valentines Day from 1-4pm we will DRUM, we will DANCE, and we will RISE at the Out of Door Academy Performing Arts Center in Lakewood Ranch. Together with Girls Inc. UN Women, SPARCC, SELAH Freedom, Women's Resource Center, and the Visible Men Academy --- we will join thousands of men and women around the globe for ONE BILLION RISING - 
the V-Day campaign to end violence against women and girls. 

It's a beautiful afternoon of artistic expression, powerful stories, and anincredible panel session with impassioned members of our Sarasota community who are doing great work.
