Thank you so much to the incredible crowd of over 150 who came out last night to honor Domestic Violence Awareness Month with us at Our Bodies, Our Stories at the Bell House in Brooklyn. We are still riding high from a beautiful and energizing night of feminist poetry, comedy, story sharing, and music. At a time when the gender justice movement is more important than ever, it was such an inspiration to share that space with all of you and engage in a critical conversation about everything from gender-based violence to sexuality to finding empowerment through art and creativity.
Special thanks to our amazing line up performers who kept us on the edge of our seats all night: Jes Tom, Diana Oh, Mariah MacCarthy, Nicole Shanté,Corinne Kai, Riti Sachdeva, and Janani Balasubramanian (Darkmatter). Support them, follow them, keep up with their work — they are out there fighting the good fight with their creative voices, standing up for social justice, and creating inspirational art!
Huge thanks goes out to our unbelievable host and headliner, Madame Gandhi whose deep passion and commitment to the feminist movement are prominent in everything she touches. We are so grateful for the wonderful energy you brought to the show! Madame Gandhi’s EP, Voices, drops October 28th — make sure you keep up with this feminist star, whose work and voice is only going to shine brighter!
Thank you to our sponsors, Interpublic Group (IPG) and Sustain, who helped make this night the incredible success that it was. Thank you to all of you for coming out and supporting the work that Sakhi does to support immigrant survivors, and helping us raise over $4,500 in just one night! Look out for our next event, and please get in touch if you’d like to get involved!
