Benefit Party to Celebrate the Nation’s New First Lady

Three Brooklyn-based, feminist organizations— Girls for Gender Equity (GGE), RightRides, and Students Active For Ending Rape (SAFER)—have joined forces for “First Lady,” a benefit party to celebrate the county’s new First Lady and support the exciting and innovative work of these local grassroots groups. The party, featuring DJ Barney Iller, will take place at Trophy Bar in Brooklyn on Thursday, February 12, from 7-10pm.

The suggested $10 donation will directly support the work of these organizations, and donors will receive free drink tickets from 7-8pm. The event will also feature Bush’s Yard Sale, a silent auction dedicated to getting rid of the old to fund the new, as well as a short documentary by Jonah Levy highlighting the work of the recipient organizations through the lens of possibilities that the Obamas bring to our future. A team of community organizers will greet attendees and provide information about volunteer opportunities, along with other ways to get involved in building safer and more just communities.
