San Diego, We Rise With You…by Shael Norris of V-Day

obr_logo-HQ Dear V-Day San Diego,

I am so honored and proud to be a part of such amazingness happening all around the globe.  What you have done in San Diego has rippled and inspired organizers everywhere to go bigger and bolder than ever.  It is awe inspiring.  You are all my sheros and heros and are truly rocking it this year!

Waking up this morning, on the day we have been planning for since our last anniversary, I am anxious & excited & cannot WAIT to feel the tsunami of women and men around this world as we change the planet ~ rise, ride the wave we are sending from the East Coast & carry it all the way to Fiji!

With all my love,


Shael Norris is the Director of College and Community Campaigns for V-Day and has worked at V-Day since its inception in 1999, when she met Eve on the Off-Broadway production of The Vagina Monologues. She now resides in Rhode Island with her three children (Aela, Aidan and Natalie) and husband Jason.
