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:
On Saturday June 13th, we invite you to dance and reaffirm that Black Lives Matter.
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.
Suggested minimum donation is $25, but nobody will be turned away for lack of funds. Larger donations are encouraged from those who are able.
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.
Participants may also make donations directly to these organizations via:
All ages and ability levels are welcome to join us.
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.
