Party for a Cause: Help End Street Harassment in DC

Lights... Camera... Collective Action!
Some of you may know I recently joined the board of Collective Action for Safe Spaces. Collective Action for Safe Spaces (CASS) is known for its workshops, WMATA's anti-sexual harassment campaign, and more recently the Right Rides DC service. All of the programming supports the same goal : mobilizing the community to end public sexual harassment and assault in Washington, DC.

CASS is celebrating its 6th Anniversary next month and you're invited! This gala fundraiser and community appreciation event is scheduled for April 16, at Room & Board, 1840 14th St NW. 

Every ticket supports CASS' programs (read more about them). And of course, this is a PARTY, so get ready for:

Music by DJ Crochet Kingpin! Dance, then take a break for food + drinks.
Stand-up comic Chelsea Shortewho I'm personally vouching for cos I just saw her at Meeps.
Massages! Yep, free massages from a professional masseuse. You guys, massages.
Silent auction with fun local goods & original art.
Slam poetry by Madeira Slam Poetry Team.
And, photobooth! Here are some photos form last year's event.

Tickets are $45. If you are interested in helping at a higher level, the Director's Chair Tickets are $150 and include some bonus benefits. If you decide to purchase a Director's Chair ticket, send me an email and I'll send you a little photo gift from the blog.

Thanks for reading this! Whether you're able to attend or not, follow @SafeSpacesDC for updates, and if you have an experience to share, you can share right on the CASS website.
