Tammy was instrumental in bringing The Vagina Monologues to Evanston which brought awareness of issues related to Domestic Violence to the standing-room-only audience.
Two years ago, Tammy organized a One Billion Rising event at the Evanston Depot Square. It was part of the biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history, and Tammy’s efforts brought this important issue to the attention of the local community. The campaign is a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. This is more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS.
In 2016, with the excellent organization of Tammy Koncitik, the event was held outside on Depot Square, and many people driving or walking past saw women drumming, dancing and speaking about violence against women. This year's event was held indoors due to weather, but it was no less successful.
