V-Day Wartburg has been an officially recognized student organization for 15 years. The organization’s work is grounded in four core beliefs:
• Art has the power to transform consciousness and inspire people to act;
• Lasting social and cultural change is spread by ordinary people doing extra ordinary things;
• Local women best know what their communities need and can become unstoppable leaders;
• One must look at the intersection of race, class and gender to understand gender-based violence.

V-Day is a global movement to end gender-based violence, and activists look at the intersection of class, race, gender, war, environmental destruction and many other things to understand the systemic violence that people face.
