Valentine's Day is striking a serious tone in Wyomissing.

Berks Women in Crisis and Centro Hispano have joined forces to raise awareness about the One Billion Rising Campaign.

This event was also held at the Crowne Plaza.

The idea is to urge folks to stand up, rise and demand that violence against women and girls ends.
