Welcoming in the New Year, we are thrilled to share the NEW “We Are Rising” music video. Directed by social justice artist Taína Asili – who also wrote and performed the song – the video features studio footage from the recording session and activist footage from One Billion Rising actions all over the globe. It is a call to action, to dance, to RISE.
The song celebrates our collective energy, creative resistance, and solidarity as we RISE against the tides of violence against all women, climate crisis, racism and corporate greed.
