Please join our sister group, Indivisible Brooklyn (IBK), a national movement focused on resisting the Trump agenda, as we host our first fundraiser to support Brooklyn Defender Services (BDS) and their work to defend immigrants.
BDS is a vital organization that provides comprehensive representation to thousands of immigrant clients who face life-changing consequences as a result of the current administration. While DC remains deeply impaired and deadlocked, we at IBK are focused on resisting Trump’s agenda at a local level.
What: Alternative Laughs: An IBK fundraiser for BDS (#AltLaughsforBDS), will feature comedy by:
Courtney Maginnis (Brooklyn Comedy Festival, College Humor, @courtmaginnis)
Jaboukie Young-White (The Fader, Clickhole)
Mamoudou N’Diyae (Mic, MTV)
Tommy McNamara (The Onion, Seeso)
Ziwe Fumudoh (Baited with Ziwe, The Onion)
Hosted by Dylan Evans (The Annoyance Theater) & Neil Sharma (deadass).
The evening will also feature a brief presentation by Nyasa Hickey, Supervising Attorney for BDS’s immigration practice.
When: Friday, May 19th from 7-9 pm
Where: At Thoughtworks, 99 Madison Ave 15th Floor
Please spread the word, attend the event, and, if you can't make it, please consider making a donation to the cause anyway.
Your contribution will help BDS, among other things, to produce a vital “Know-Your-Rights” video in multiple languages for wider distribution across the country.
