I was accepted to the Summer Leadership Institute lead by Urban Bush Women July 22-31 in New Orleans to study dance as a tool for social justice. Exciting!! Though I have received a partial tuition scholarship I still need to raise some funds to pay for lodging and my plane ticket. The goal is $1000! To raise funds I will be hosting a First Friday Performance Salon (w/ amazing performers) on June 3rd. If you can't make it please consider making a tax-deductible donation* of $10-$1,000 TODAY:
