We had our outdoor screening of Yogawoman, hosted by Melanie, and had a very nice time outdoors this past Saturday. The weather was surprisingly comfortable for the evening screening under the stars and we raised $300. It was a pleasure meeting the women who came out in support of my Global Seva efforts and victims of sex trafficking. Women helping women (and one man, Melanie's husband who set up our techno area!). If you have not seen Yogawoman or if you would love to see it again and contribute to the Global Seva through your participation, please stay tuned to either the Chichester, NY event on Aug 18 or upcoming fall/winter showings.
    We are making steady progress through the Community Yoga class, every Wed at Four Winds Yoga (note: no class next Wed, July 25) and raising a little bit every week. Check it out and join this all levels class full of women and young women practicing and making a difference!
    Jada Pinkett Smith, actress, urged Congress to step up the fight against human trafficking in the US and abroad. She testified during a Senate Foreign Relations Commitee hearing, to free modern day slaves and protect human rights, the rights of women and children. Unbelievably, the issue was brought to her attention by her 11 year old daughter! The State Department estimates that at least 14,500 people are trafficking into the US annually. This number does not account for those that are trafficked from within our country: the so-called "throw-aways" or children who are kicked out or run away from abusive homes. The number of trafficked children and adolescents in the US is estimated at 100,000- 300,000. Unbelievable. Please join the fight and be a Light for others.
Thank you!
