UB Live: Yoga for a Cause

This Saturday at 3pm EST join us @mynameisjessamyn 
for an IGlive yoga class to raise money to #FreeBlackMamas for #MothersDay! Find out more about this incredible cause and join us on the mat for a Mother's Day weekend class to honor the nurturing capacity inside all of us. Show up, look within and find yourself

This year, @NationalBailOut is fundraising with 26 orgs to #FreeBlackMamas in 27 cities & 19 states! You can’t practice social distancing inside a cage — for #MothersDay, help #FlattenTheCurve by donating to pay bail for mamas being held in cages during the #covid19 crisis because they can’t afford bail! #FreeBlackMamas 

As a result of misogynoir, Black mamas and caregivers are perpetually excluded from decarceration tactics in spite of their disproportionate representation in jails across the U.S. NBO is a collective led by Black women and femmes, with a clear Black feminist mandate — to free our people and center those who have been historically marginalized. The #covid19 crisis has highlighted what we have already known and surfaced a new urgency to #FreeBlackMamas from the harsh confines of a cage, to mitigate the risk of illness and even death. Help break open cages by donating to pay bail and provide supportive services for someone who can’t afford it!
