“We Are Rising”: A New Protest Anthem by Taína Asili (video)

Puerto Rican musician and activist Taína Asili has made sure that 2020 starts off with a protest bang and just where last year left off.

“We Are Rising” is a collaboration with One Billion Rising, an activist movement that strives to raise awareness of violence against women.

Taína states that “Music has always been the heartbeat of our movements for liberation. With “We Are Rising” I offer women around the world a new anthem to help us tap into the energy, strength, courage and wisdom needed to usher in a new era of justice and healing.”
