This month’s Saturday donation class will benefit the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV). This is a national non-profit organization working to end gun violence by enacting research-based policy changes and addressing the toxic agenda and “insurrectionist” ideology espoused by the NRA.
“We believe that all Americans have a right to live in communities free from gun violence. We pursue this goal through policy development, strategic engagement, and effective advocacy.” -CSGV
We (as of February 18) are 49 days into 2018, and have had a total of 32 mass shootings. There have been also been 18 gunfire incidents on school campuses. 10 of these incidents intentionally resulted in injury or death. We understand that facing gun control is an uphill battle (perhaps that’s an understatement) but Grounded Wellness is here with you. We will keep trying everything and anything- showing up at rallies, calling our senators and representatives, staying strong- while hurt, broken, and scared. We will use our feelings about these horrendous events to drive our actions and demand change. We will use everything we have- including our ability to organize a donation yoga class to support monetarily in solidarity.
This class is also meant to help sustain us by providing a space to share with our community, to support CSGV, and stand together in the shared belief that change needs to happen. This class will not be “thoughts or prayers” to end this, nor will it take the place of calling our representatives, senators, or the NRA to demand change. This class will support us by offering space to move and process our feelings in solidarity with our community, and the hope of empowering all of us to keep at it, no matter how hard it is.
