This year, we are excited to be holding our fourth nationwide Shine Your Light Yoga Festival on December 12th! This event will bring together yogis across the US as studios and fitness centers host a trauma-informed class to support survivors of sexual violence. Over a hundred locations in all 50 states are already confirmed to participate. We will also be live streaming eight classes over our virtual platform throughout the day to accommodate up to 80,000 more participants.
The time could not be more urgent. The United Nations Population Fund roughly estimates that there has been a 20% rise in intimate partner violence alone around the world since the start of the COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders. That amounts to 15 million additional cases in the span of just several months.
We need your support to make our event as impactful and healing as possible. We ask you to please join The Avon Foundation for Women, Netflix, and all of our other proud sponsors and supporters in one or more of these funding opportunities:
- Online participation in our events and outreach programs
- Participation of battered women’s shelters in our events and outreach programs
- Evidence-based educational programming for thousands of young people in secondary schools and colleges nationwide
- Donation to our virtual auction for December 12th
TBTNF is a 100% volunteer-run nonprofit organization with a strong following on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn, and other social media platforms. Your tax-deductible support will be seen as an extremely powerful commitment to standing with sexual violence survivors.
