Dancers stopped traffic on Main Street for a good cause Thursday night.
About 50 dancers affiliated with No Excuse for Abuse of Spartanburg came together for the international movement, One Billion Rising. The dancers performed between Converse and Liberty Street.
“We stand proud as sisters,” said Jan Hammett, of No Excuse for Abuse. “Never let anyone paralyze your spirit. Be real, be authentic.”
The global movement is called One Billion Rising: No Excuse for Abuse. The name derives from data that indicates 1 in 3 women on Earth will be beaten or raped in her lifetime. With a world population of 7 billion, this adds up to more than one billion abused women and girls.
This inclusive family event will take place in downtown Spartanburg on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2013. All women and children and those that love them are invited to join us in dance and have fun while focusing on the spirit of the community and putting a stop to abuse and violence.
Please join us as we dance our way to “No Excuse for Abuse” on Valentine’s Day, 2013!
