Rachel has been a volunteer activist for V-Day since 2002 and will continue to do so Until the Violence Stops.

V-Day, a non-profit 501c3 corporation, distributes funds to grassroots, national and international organizations and programs that work to stop violence against women and girls. V-Day has received numerous acknowledgements and awards and is, one of the Top-Rated organizations on both Charity Navigator and Guidestar. In 2001, V-Day was named one of Worth Magazine’s “100 Best Charities,” in 2006 one of Marie Claire Magazine’s Top Ten Charities, and in 2010 was named as one of the Top-Rated organizations on GreatNonprofits. In seventeen years, the V-Day movement has raised over $100 million.

1 in 3 women will be raped or abused in her lifetime; if you do the math, that’s 1 billion women. That is unacceptable.

V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money, and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation (FGM), and sex slavery.

Join us in the fight to free Leonard Peltier! Native American political prisoner, Leonard Peltier, has been wrongfully imprisoned for over 37 years, which is 10 years LONGER than Nelson Mandela. The prosecution withheld exonerating evidence from Leonard Peltier at his Trial in the late 1970’s. Despite a successful Freedom of Information Act lawsuit that produced a ballistics report proving Leonard Peltier’s innocence, his request for a new trial was shockingly DENIED. Watch this video:

Rachel VanKoughnet is a rebellious lawyer willing to tell it how it is. Women are not farm animals. Pro Lifers have been Pro Choicing pregnant ladies to death since 2007. Watch this video:

This video is a brilliant legal argument about how the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees equal rights to all citizens and how it is literally unconstitutional for the Supreme Court to decide only one gender (women) are not allowed to have access to life saving medical procedures (abortion). This is a legal argument that involves clips from the movie Dirty Dancing and it is done outside the Courtroom, so calm down.
