Join Blayne and Jenny for Om for Safe Homes - a virtual yoga class benefit to raise money for Sanctuary for Families. The benefit class will take place Friday, May 15th from 5:15pm - 6:15pm followed by a community happy hour. In times of social distancing & quarantine, our homes are the safest place to be. However, COVID-19 has exacerbated the incidence of domestic violence across the country and in our community, making families who experience violence in the home more vulnerable. In NYC, domestic violence calls have been down during the pandemic, but not necessarily because it's happening less. The strict measures put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the city have raised hurdles and increased risks for victims seeking help. With schools and nonessential businesses shut down, victims have lost opportunities to find privacy away from their abusers to seek help. Sanctuary for Families is New York's leading service provider and advocate for survivors of domestic violence. They are dedicated to the safety, healing, and self-determination of victims of domestic violence and related forms of gender violence.
