This week is Valentine's Day. Many people will celebrate it with their loved ones. Others will take part in V-Day, a worldwide dance-based event to end violence against women and girls, put on by One Billion Rising.
Founded by Eve Ensler, creator of The Vagina Monologues, the huge rally is made possible by regional coordinators across the globe, with the help of people just like you.
One in three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime. That is one billion women.
The name, One Billion Rising, is synergistic with our Billions Rising. And the cause is one that we believe in. So that week on our radio show, we decided to have a roundtable discussion on solutions to the topic.
Joining us are:
Patricia Melnice, Founder of Tough Angels, a Colorado-based non-profit. Their mission is to help put a stop to violence and rape in Africa, protect the survivors, and help the victims to heal and thrive.
Lucia Mitro, Founder of Timeless Light, who works directly with groups of immigrant women who are trying to leave violent relationships. She divides them based on their stage of the journey, and helps them find their own solutions.
Cynthia Nehf and Rochelle Hogge of Women's Crisis Support Team, who work with abused Oregon women to provide advocacy, intervention, education, support groups and access to services. Their goal is to help them be safe, learn their options and ultimately move into a position of renewed strength.
The conversation will be moderated by our host, Anita Casalina, and our producer, Heather Vale Goss.
Please share this episode of Billions Rising's Self-Reliance Radio with your friends.

Ennufff joins One Billion Rising this V-Day to end sexual abuse and violence. We are rising! Valentine's Day, particularly, in the Western World, symbolizes love. Yet, to so many (women and men) around the world, V-Day may also be a day of dread, symbolizing instead abuse and torment. We'll talk about what this day could mean to victims/survivors and look at ways to RISE! We'll talk about other One Billion Rising activities, particularly around the Caribbean and in the Diaspora.
Stop Domestic Violence is a phrase that has been thrown around way too much in our society. From the NFL, corporate office, school and home will be the topic of today's talk show with Mrs. Lisa Parsons of One Billion Rising ! Co-hosted by national host and CEO of www.getoffndrive.com
The caleder still says February, the temperature in the northeast is still below freezing, and for many the winter snow has been relentless. However, nothing advertises a changing of the season quite like Spring Training.
Port St. Lucie is finally open for business. All position players were due by Tuesday, and today marked the first day of full squad workouts.
Over the winter, the Mets contracted a strong case of confidence. Tonight's 94th episode of the Rising Apple Report will swing the gates open to Camp Bravado, and debate the merits of their words.
If the Mets indeed seem emboldened to you, perhaps the return of Matt Harvey is one reason why. On March 6th, he will tentatively take the mound and face live competition for the first time since 2013.
Also up for discussion are the potential crowding of the bullpen and a lack of another lefty, Lucas Duda's injury, the never ending quest to rectify shortstop, the 1994 regular season, and much more.
Rising Apple staff writer Rich Sparago will host this evening's discussion, and will be joined by fellow staff writer Michael Lecolant. As always, you are most welcome to call the show and join the conversation.
The number is 646-929-0337. The show starts at 9:00pm (EST) sharp.

The Rising Apple Report rolls in on a weekend to discuss all things New York Mets! Sam Maxwell hosts, with Site Editor Danny Abriano joining him for the 95th Episode!
The lefty situation, or lack thereof, has dominated the chatter the last few days, with Josh Edgin having to decide between rehab and Tommy John Surgery and the rest of the options in camp now performing up to par. Many Mets fans believe this could have been avoided, though Sandy claims there was not "right fit" out there. We'll discuss whether or not he could have done more to shore this issue up.
Zack Wheeler has been scratched from his next start with elbow tendonitis. We'll talk about how concerned we should be regarding the right-handed pitcher, whose success is such a key to this next Mets era.
Players have been singing the praises of new hitting coach Kevin Long, especially his old Yankee partner Curtis Granderson. We'll discuss his impact so far, and whether we can really tell how positive of an impact he has had this early in the year.
So, join us for the newest edition of the Rising Apple Report!
