SUU hosts V-Day fundraiser to end violence against women

CEDAR CITY  — Southern Utah is joining the effort to prevent and end violence against women and girls. 100 percent of the funds raised by this campaign will be donated to the Canyon Creek Women’s Crisis Center in Cedar City, Utah.

The movement is currently trying to raise funds to produce The Vagina Monologues, as a V-Day campaign event, benefiting the Canyon Creek Women’s Crisis Center.

You can view and contribute to the effort at:

The Vagina Monologues is more than just a play. It is a conversation, it is a movement, it is a safe haven and it is a revolution to end violence towards women and girls; including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation and sex slavery.

The concept of the campaign is simple. If we take into account the statistics that 1 in 3 women will experience violence in her lifetime, we are left with the staggering number that over 1 billion women on this planet will be impacted by violence.

Over the years, the V-Day Campaign has not only grown substantially, but has reached out to 200 hundred countries where women, men and youth come together to RISE, DANCE, and DEMAND the end to violence against women and girls.

At Southern Utah University, it gives us every reason to want to be a part of such successful campaign. Through the production of The Vagina Monologues, we can make a difference in our community. We can be a substantial resource for those in need, and be the change we want to see and feel in our communities.

Please join us at Southern Utah University, Feb. 26-28 at 7 p.m. to be a part of this incredible, global movement striving for peace.
