In October 2020, Yvonne Faith, along with other local dancers and musicians, in partnership with the Frist Arts Museum took to the streets of North Nashville for the second time in what is known as Street Dance Activism in an effort to bring unity, healing, and affirmation to the African American community. The movement was lead by Shabaz Ujima, a graduate of the Nashville School of the Arts who has danced professionally with Dayton Contemporary Dance Company and Cleo Parker Robinson Dance. 

Street Dance Activism originated out of South Central Los Angeles in 2015 by Dr. Shamell Bell, an original member of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Volunteer Efforts

Though many of her volunteer endeavors are not photographed, Yvonne Faith prioritizes giving back to the community. She has volunteered at St. Thomas' Hope Lodge, LP PENCIL Box, Vanderbilt Hospital, and with various food drives in Nashville, TN. As an artist with The Dancer Project, she was able to use dance to reach residents at Room at the Inn Nashville and Azalea Trace Assisted Living. In November 2019, she led an anti-bullying campaign with Community Alert New Dimension Scholars for students grades 5-12 and partnered with Hands On Nashville in March 2020 to help tornado victims whose homes were destroyed. She often serves at her local church and supports members of her community in times of crisis. She currently uses her book's Instagram account, @awordtothewisebook, as a way to reach young women and encourage them to achieve their highest potential. Yvonne Faith is currently looking for ways to reach and assist minority and marginalized young women through dance and literacy. If you would like to partner with her in that effort, contact her below.
