Our new liberation anthem, “We Are Rising,” is a global hit! The video has been viewed over half a million times and the song has been featured at the center of risings around the world!
We keep rising like the fire of the sun…
One for a billion a billion for one
– Taína Asili, “We Are Rising”
The song is a call to action and a call to RISE against the tides of violence against all women, climate crisis, racism, and corporate greed. The anthem has resonated with activists, with footage already coming in from Myanmar, Italy, US Virgin Islands, Thailand, Philippines, Swaziland, Mexico, Canada, and the United States showing activists, survivors, and community members dancing to it.
