See Murray Hill & More While Helping to Raise Money for Women’s Orgs at “Persisticon” in Brooklyn!

by Rosemarie Lundgaard

Mark your calendars! Persisticon, a feminist organization that works to help raise money to support progressive women in politics, is hosting a new event: PERSISTICON V: IN US WE TRUST, this October in Brooklyn. 

After being postponed by Covid-19, Persisticon is back with their fifth event since 2018— a night of comedy, cocktails, and baked goods to raise money for Emily’s List and the NY Abortion Access Fund. Emily’s List’s mission is to elect Democratic women who are pro-choice to office. The NYAAF helps anyone who is either a New York State resident (or traveling to New York to get help) and cannot pay for an abortion.

 The event is hosted by “the king of showbiz,” Murray Hill, with music by DJ Suzy Hotrod and performances from comedians Judy Gold, Joanna Briley, Hollie Harper, Jay Jurden, Remy Kassimir, Allison Reese, Viva Ruiz, and more. It will be an evening filled with laughter, cake, and community to support women’s reproductive rights— you won’t find a more convenient and fun way to help and get informed on these urgent feminist issues.

WHEN: Sunday, October 2nd – door opens at 7:30 pm, show starts at 8 pm

WHERE: The Bell House—149 7th St. Brooklyn NY
