V-Day Season is not over! Our community partners with Deaf V-Day Sacramento are performing The Vagina Monologues in American Sign Language. See below for show details. All proceeds from their performance benefit DeafSAFE NorCal, a local program offering advocacy and support for individuals who experience domestic violence, dating violence, sexual violence and stalking who are deaf or hard of hearing, and intimate partners and family members close to survivors who are also emotionally affected. V-Day Sacramento will be there to support our Deaf V-Day sisters and we hope to see you there!
