EXPOSURE: Benefiting Survivors of Domestic Violence since 2012
Each year, Exposure presents Exposure: A Women’s Benefit Event to bring opportunity and visibility to women, trans and nonbinary skater’s who embody courage and strength. Over 170 skaters from around the world come to Encinitas, California (near San Diego) for the opportunity to share their skateboarding skills on a global stage. The event also serves as a benefit for survivors of domestic violence.
This flagship event was created to further our vision of increasing the representation of powerful female, trans, and nonbinary skateboarders in the media and to challenge societal norms. Furthermore, our event raises awareness of and donates proceeds to a local shelter for survivors of domestic violence. This dual purpose serves to strengthen women and gender minorities in our community and beyond. A key feature of this event is our vendor village that showcases women and LGBTQ+ focused, health and socially-conscious companies.
