Global benefit for Equality Now, weekend of 6/22-25

Okay, I'm gonna break my rule of images only to bring you this. Breaking this rule is a HUGE deal for me, so the least you can do is read this post, loser (^_^) :

The weekend of June 22-25 is playing host to benefit screenings of Joss Whedon's movie Serenity around the world. Screenings will be preceded or followed by dinners, auctions, and other fundraising activities, with all proceeds above and beyond the price of theater/print/restaurant rental going to Equality Now, an international organization which works to end violence and discrimination against women and girls around the world through the mobilization of public pressure. Issues of concern to Equality Now include rape, domestic violence, reproductive rights, trafficking, female genital mutilation, political participation, and gender discrimination.

Go to to find information on screenings in your neck of the woods.

Please pass along to anyone you know who might be interested in this sort of thing.

If you're there on the 23rd, ask anyone in charge in point you to Mike C., and tell them you heard about the event here at nycityofmike.
