Thank you, Sacramento! Our first event raised $560 for the ACLU & ACLU of Northern California! Stay tuned for May event announcement. We are coordinating with the International Rescue Committee (IRC). Once we have all ticketing and venue details in place, you will be the first to know!
In the meantime, learn more about the IRC.
Yoga + Peace in Action is a series of fundraising events in Sacramento designed to build community, support organizations, and instigate positive social change.
The goal of Yoga + Peace in Action is to create, organize, and mobilize a politically and civically active Sacramento yoga community to support organizations that defend and protect civil, human, and first-amendment rights and to actively engage with local, state, and federal government.
Yoga + Peace in Action is a direct response to the results of the November 8, 2016 election. It is a direct response to any effort to threaten or weaken American civil, human, or first-amendment right on local, state, and federal levels.
What a Yoga + Peace in Action Event Does
Each event will raise funds and support for a specific organization that is working to defend and protect civil, human, and first-amendment rights. We will also support organizations that are working hard to fill the funding and service gaps created by Trump administration cuts.
Together, we will support organizations and changemakers, educate ourselves about the work that needs to happen, and activate our Sacramento yoga community to engage with local, state, and federal governments.
Each month will focus on a different organization. Think of it as a cause-of-the-month club that connects you to a series of great organizations and fellow citizens working hard to be the best change possible in the world.
Donations (or membership, when an option) to the selected organization of the month are processed on your behalf with the purchase of the event ticket. An admin fee of $10 is added to each ticket. (Full transparency: this fee covers the credit card processing and ticketing service fees associated with each purchase. Funds collected from this fee also cover venue rental, insurance, printing, postage, and other costs associated with creating and promoting each event. Currently, the ticketing service we use delivers a check within 10 business days. Within 48 hours of receipt of payment, we will send the organization your donation/membership.)
