About the Event
We will celebrate the success of the Journey Series and celebrate our mission to heal, empower, and unite survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. Attendees will partake in a 60-minute yoga class followed by brunch and specialized cocktails, while supporting local artists and performers that advocate on behalf of Self-Reclaimed’s mission.
This year, we have a very important goal to raise at least $2,500 in support of our mission in order to create safe spaces for survivors. We cannot meet our goal without the help of sponsors and supporters like you!
