Let's get together and support the great work they are doing!

ABOUT THE YOGA:
Bring a yoga mat and any props you would like to use for your practice. Some meditation cushions and blankets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. The yoga will be a medium-to-slow paced flow. (If you prefer yin yoga and still want to attend, we will provide a hand-out for you to follow on your own. Of course, if you want a 90-minute savasana, you are welcome to come in and rest.)
There are two ticketing options, Member and Supporter. 1.) A Member ticket will create a membership to or add to your membership of the ACLU. It is a c(4) contribution, which is not tax deductible. Becoming a member supports both political and lobbying activity for work throughout the country. 2.) A Supporter ticket will allow you to make a tax-deductible ©3 monetary contribution that will support the ACLU of Northern California's public education and impact litigation work.
