Now in its 8th year, Shimmy Mob – Washington, DC resumed its annual fundraising and awareness campaign for House of Ruth!
It’s been a challenging two years for everyone, but even tougher for those who are in lockdown/quarantine with their abusers.
Shimmy Mob is a global effort to raise funds and awareness campaigns for domestic abuse crisis centers and its victims. Teams from all over the world danced on May 8, 2021 in celebration of World Belly Dance Day.
Traditionally, the team has performed at Freedom Plaza along with other surprise stops off the Metro. This year instead of a live performance in downtown DC, the team premiered a performance video on its Facebook Community page.
