Strong With Survivors

Join us for yoga, sport, and movement sessions to help us end gender-based violence. All Strong With Survivors proceeds support the YWCA Halifax December 6th Fund that gives women and gender diverse survivors the resources they need to leave dangerous and abusive situations.

How Do Strong with Survivors Sessions Work?

When you participate in a studio session with your chosen yoga, sport, or movement activity, you financially support life-saving programs while bringing awareness to your community.

Rather than charge an entry fee, our fantastic studio and venue partners will be collecting donations for the YWCA Halifax December 6th Fund.

About the December 6th Fund

The hidden price of leaving your abuser often feels like a barrier no one else can see.

The December 6th Fund addresses these challenges with non-interest-bearing microloans of up to $500 for women and gender diverse people fleeing abuse. The microloan can cover housing-related costs including but not limited to, damage deposits, rent, utilities, arrears, moving or storage payments, and phone and internet bills.

When women and gender diverse people are given the supports and opportunities to leave an abuser(s), they can empower themselves and build a better life.
