“DARE TO BE” GALA: Celebrating Immigrant Women, Trans, and GNC Leadership
Saturday, July 13, 2019, 7PM
Judson Memorial Church
55 Washington Square S, New York, NY, 10012
Wheelchair entrance at 243 Thomson St.
This year, we are celebrating those who dare to be. Women, trans, and gender non-conforming folks are at the forefront of the immigrants’ rights movement and yet so often their work is erased. We want to honor those who dare to be visible; those who fight for gender justice and immigrant justice; those who tear down binaries and borders.
Join us for a night of performances, speakers, and dancing. All tickets include dinner and open bar (21+). We will also be celebrating our most recent victory: the signing of the NY Dream Act into law. All proceeds benefit the New York State Youth Leadership Council (NYSYLC), a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
All ages are welcome. Free admission for children 13 and under. Please reserve a free ticket if they require a seat.

The New York State Youth Leadership Council (NYSYLC) is the first undocumented youth-led organization in New York. We give undocumented youth the tools and space to organize and create change for their communities. Through programs for educational advancement, grassroots organizing, leadership development, and self-expression, we create a space for undocumented youth to step into their power and create the change they wish to see.
