Event Description

Please join us on January 28th at 5:00pm at Ashland Hills Hotel for our “Shine a Light” annual yoga fundraising event. This event is to help shine a light for the millions of children, teens and women living in the shadows of sexual abuse, exploitation and sex trafficking and the commercial sex industry.

 

The wake of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual allegations birthed a worldwide movement.  Victims of sexual assault are speaking out. This ‘me too’ has arisen with enough collective power to push through the insidious and urgent silencing force of abuse. How do we keep this soul shaking ‘no’ to sexual exploitation and abuse alive? How can we each contribute our voice, our prayers and our support to this worthy cause? “Shine a Light” is a wonderful opportunity to make a small contribution that becomes part of a huge change.

 

In the words of Suzanne Sterling and Seane Corn in their article for The Yoga Journal, “Each day, there are at least 3 million women and children enslaved for sex. That’s more than three times the entire population of San Francisco. Most of these victims are between 12 and 14 years old, and many are sold into slavery by their families out of desperation or misinformation. The sex trafficking industry is an estimated $32 billion gig, outdone in size only by the illegal trade of arms and drugs. And it flies mostly under the radar in many countries due to a complicated web of socioeconomic issues. It is a devastatingly prevalent but mostly hidden epidemic that can be challenging to face head on.”

 

No one person can do it alone. Together, we can all make a difference. Join us on January 28th at the Ashland Hills Hotel at 5:00pm. Ashland Hills Hotel is located at 2525 Ashland Street in Ashland. We will gather at the darkest time of the year to practice yoga by candlelight, in community with a common vision of making a difference. Twelve inspiring yoga teachers will each guide the participants through 108 minutes of yoga. Each participant will commit to raise $108. We invite you to support in this worthy cause. All donations are tax-deductible. You do not need to be at this event in order to make a donation or to participate.

In Victory for Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Court Finds That Approval of Dakota Access Pipeline Violated the Law |THE INDIGENOUS AMERICAN

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe won a significant victory today in its fight to protect the Tribe’s drinking water and ancestral lands from the Dakota Access pipeline. A federal judge ruled that the federal permits authorizing the pipeline to cross the Missouri River just upstream of the Standing Rock reservation, which were hastily issued by the Trump administration just days after the inauguration, violated the law in certain critical respects.

Stand With Standing Rock, March on DC

Stop ignoring Arizona on public lands | AZC

Gov. Doug Ducey’s assertion that Arizonans oppose the Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument is unfounded. State polls show vast support for protecting the Grand Canyon watershed from uranium mining and preserving the threatened cultural and historical sites in the region.
