V-Day is a coalition of women and men brought together by a common cause: to stop violence against women and girls. We believe that the power of community is one of the strongest tools we have to create a safer future. Accordingly, ours is a grassroots movement that relies on strong partnerships forged form a shared commitment to ending violence. We would like to invite you to be part of this community and take part in the V-Day 2009 celebration in Minneapolis.

There are also some events happening at The Old Arizona Theatre on 28th and Nicollet over the entire weekend, including a production of "The Vagina Monologues" and a screening of "What I Want My Words to Do to You." The site has all the details.

Thanks for posting, David!
