Kendra Dawsey is a stand-up comic who has performed in clubs and showcases in NYC and all over New England. Kendra garners humor from her identity and experiences by blending anecdote with higher concepts. Never too proud to laugh at herself, Kendra endears audiences by inviting them to laugh with her.
Proceeds from this first event will benefit Southerners on New Ground (SONG), a regional Queer Liberation organization made up of Black people, people of color, immigrants, undocumented people, people with disabilities, working class and rural and small town, LGBTQ people in the South.
This is also the launch of a new giving circle based in NJ, supporting SONG's kindred organizations organizing across the South for liberation in our lifetime. A giving circle is a group of people who pool funds and collectively decide what organizations to donate those funds to. They engage in political education and explore the work they are supporting.
As Black, POC, working class, and queer people, resistance is our legacy, but we must continuously recommit ourselves to each other, to our movement and to our commitment to collective liberation. Our legacy is one of turning grief into action. Our power lives in our organizing and in building our beloved kindred.
The event will be held in a one-story, carpeted home. There is one step up to a brick patio and then another step up to the door. There is no wheelchair-accessible bathroom.
