This year has been defined by courageous acts of resistance from women across this country, from leading marches to making the most calls and visits to Congress to exposing sexual assault, and well beyond.
To celebrate these badass women and gear up for the fight ahead, Art, Humanity & Action: We Persist brings together NYC's favorite female storytellers for a night of uplifting, inspiring, funny personal stories and songs about persistence. Plus, speakers and stories from local, women-led organizations about ways to get involved and elect more women to office in 2018.
Organized and hosted by Nicole Ferraro (Why So Much Shame?, New York Story Exchange), the evening will feature stories and song by: Sydnee Washington (Karma Lounge's Warm Up, Unofficial Experts Podcast); Jasmine Fernandez (Founding Member, Women of Color for Progress); Jen Kwok (Shittier, Date an Asian); Sandi Marx (seven-time Moth StorySLAM champion); Leslie Goshko (Sideshow Goshko and Manhattan Monologue Slam Champion), and more.

About ART, HUMANITY & ACTION:
Born in response to the 2016 election, Art, Humanity & Action is a series that unites storytelling, social justice, and fundraising. The first annual Art, Humanity & Action event was hosted at the LGBT Center in December 2016, featuring 15 storytellers and speakers from Planned Parenthood, the Muslim Community Network, and Showing Up for Racial Justice; with over $1,000 raised for the Anti-Violence Project. Art, Humanity & Action is produced and organized by Nicole Ferraro, with immense help from Asher Novek, Sandi Marx & Jeff Rose.
