About The Event

This past week has been heavy for a lot of us. The leaked draft opinion from the Supreme Court indicating it could overturn Roe v. Wade means that millions of women in more than half the United States could either lose the ability to get an abortion or see their access drastically rolled back.

I know so many of you feel similar to me right now--helpless, sad, and angry. I don't have the answers, but I want to help and the only way I know how is yoga and donations (and don't forget to vote).

According to The Cut, if/when Roe is overturned, it is estimated that abortion would be explicitly or effectively outlawed in at least 26 states. And Republicans have been already been chipping away at access in these states for years, making abortion virtually inaccessible even if technically legal.

If you’re feeling terrified and want to take action, the best thing you can do is donate to an abortion fund: an on-the-ground organization that helps arrange and pay for abortion care for patients who need it. In states where access has been whittled away almost entirely, these funds also help pay for transportation and lodging for patients who have to travel hours, sometimes crossing state lines, just to access health care.

All of the proceeds from your donations, of any amount, will be sent to the Mississippi Reproductive Freedom Fund. Why Mississippi? Because Mississipi has just one abortion clinic left, and 91 percent of women in the state live in counties with no provider. The state has a pre-Roe ban, a post-Roe trigger ban, and a six- week abortion ban that's currently blocked from taking effect. The Mississippi Reproductive Freedom Fund offers financial assistance and practical support to persons seeking abortion as well as free emergency contraception, community based comprehensive sex education, and fighting for reproductive justice in Mississippi. 

Let us strive together for a world where every person experiences full reproductive justice. Join me for a 60-minute all-levels (and pre/postnatal friendly) yoga flow. We will start with a community circle at the beginning of class that will give us the opportunity to meet one another as well as share any experience or feeling you are having in this heavy time--you can also pass and choose not to share.
