No Space For Hate

We are activists, parents, and humans who have no space—in our lives, in our parenthood, in our world—for hate. We started as a group of friends putting on yoga fundraisers in Ferndale for local nonprofits that fought discrimination, and organically grew into a new community. When we came together with a common goal of doing some good for ourselves—but more importantly—our community, we generated new energy and new ideas for further action. We were eager to make more of an impact with other organizations in the Metro Detroit area, with policy, and with our children.

Cultivating an intentional and inclusive practice of awareness and action will help us create more space for good. Sometimes the practice will be reflective, with thoughtful community discussions focused on change. Other times, the practice will be active, with yoga classes connecting the community to local organizations and connecting local organizations—on the front lines of these causes every single day—to tools for self-care. Holding space for these values, we will improve our shared humanity through social and political action.
