March 8, 2017 is International Women's Day. All across the country, women and allies will mark the day by recognizing the enormous value that women of all backgrounds add to our socio-economic system--while receiving lower wages and experiencing greater inequities, vulnerability to discrimination, sexual harassment, and job insecurity.
#DayWithoutAWoman is a chance to act together for equity, justice and the human rights of women, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity. At 3Tree Yoga, we want to participate in the demonstration AND we feel that it might be nice to partake in yoga on this day. Please join us for two classes by donation, with proceeds benefitting non-profits that serve local women:
10:00a with Amy Dell, benefitting The Women's Center, whose mission is to inspire, teach, and empower women and families to overcome violence, crisis and poverty.
6:00p with Tiffany Denny, benefitting Embody Love Movement, committed to reminding girls and women of their intrinsic value and inspiring them to contribute to meaningful change in the world.
Please SIGN UP for class here!
Other ways to get involved:
1. Do not engage in paid & unpaid work
