From Sasha Lekach (Bay City News) for the SF Appeal:

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a resolution to declare Valentine's Day in San Francisco this year as "One Billion Rising Day" as part of a global movement to end violence against women.

One Billion Rising is an effort to raise awareness about the continuing abuse and rape of women across the world, which on Feb. 14 will be acknowledged at events in 197 countries, including an event at San Francisco City Hall.
