NBGC participates in 1 Billion Rising


The Nantucket Boys & Girls Club is proud to join A Safe Place, the Nantucket Atheneum and the Dreamland Theatre in celebrating 1 Billion Rising, a worldwide movement designed to raise awareness about sexual violence and to call on governments around the world to help bring justice to survivors of gender violence.


Club members will gather with other Nantucketer's in the Nantucket Atheneum courtyard tomorrow, February 14th, to stand in solidarity with over one billion people in more than 200 countries across the world, who are calling for an end to violence against women and girls. Our Club members will also be performing a special dance during the gathering. Participants will then march together across the street, to the Dreamland Theatre to watch a short video and listen as people rise to speak out against gender violence.


Please help us spread the word and join us at the Nantucket Atheneum at 5:00pm tomorrow!
