Support V-Day DC
V-Day DC is proud to participate in the V-Day 2013 Campaign. We will be performing a V-Day benefit production of Eve Ensler’s award-winning play, “The Vagina Monologues,” to raise money and awareness for our beneficiary HIPS and V-Day’s spotlight campaign 1 Billion Rising. HIPS provides programming and advocates for sex workers in the DC metro area. We can use your help!
The Vagina Monologues in DC is one of thousands of events around the world, channeling creative energy into making a difference as part of the V-Day Campaign. The success of our production is possible, in large part, through the assistance and generosity of donors like you.
90 percent of our profits will go to the HIPS (Helping Individual Prostitutes Survive), a unique organization whose mission is to assist female, male and transgender individuals engaging in sex work in Washington, DC. Our proceeds will support their DC Client Services, which include, outreach, education, client advocacy, HIV testing, and peer support groups. HIPS’ dedicated staff and volunteers conduct outreach 3 nights per week from 11 pm – 8 am and connect with an average of 100 sex workers. In addition HIPS has a 24 hotline that provides counseling and referrals.
The other 10 percent of our profits will go to the 2013 V-Day spotlight campaign a global call to action to end violence against women and girls.
We hope that we can depend on your financial support to help end violence against women. In return, we would like to include your information at our event:
