You're Invited! Justice Jam: Dance for Black Lives
I'm so excited to invite you to an online event I'm going to this Saturday, June 13 at 11a-12:30p Pacific. It's a Justice Jam: Dance for Black Lives benefit, and I hope you'll join us! Get your ticket here.
Here's more info from the organizers of the event:
This event is focused on providing self-care and healing while also raising funds to benefit organizations that are leading the fight against injustice.
Participants will be guided through an hour of movement that blends dance, martial arts, and healing techniques by four Seattle teachers: Melanie McFarland, Ann Nicolaysen, Juliann Taube, and Jeanna Wheeler.
All proceeds collected by the event organizers will be split equally between Black Lives Matter Seattle-King County and Color Of Change.
Donations can be made via Venmo at @Jeanna-Wheeler.
If you are new to the movement, we hope that this event will inspire you to join the fight for Black lives, or refresh and energize you for your continued efforts. Through this dance, we heal ourselves, strengthen our community, and affirm our commitment to working for justice in the world.
