2020 Shimmy Mob Team Medina Ohio
2020 marks the 10th anniversary year for Shimmy Mob, but this year's event looks a little different. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing and stay-at-home orders are preventing us from coming together to flash mob as usual. This year, dancers are taking the internet by storm to help spread awareness of domestic violence issues around the world.
So why not just wait until later in the year and perform then? Because incidence of domestic violence and related deaths have increased during this pandemic, and it is even harder for victims to escape violent situations as they may feel leaving the home would put them in more danger than staying.
So all around the world, teams are flooding the internet with photos, videos and information to help draw attention to the issue of domestic violence, how to recognize it, and where to go for help.
