Just five months in, 2016 has already proved to be a dynamic year, marked by the electrifying uprise and continuation of community powered social justice movements, and the sad loss of many cultural icons whose work had an influence on many of the movements we’re seeing today.
David Bowie, Prince and Harper Lee are among the legends who empowered us, challenged unjust norms, and changed our cultural paradigm. In their own way, these stars embodied the mission of FUREE (Families United for Racial & Economic Equality) – they empowered people everywhere to question and change systems of oppression.
As we approach this years’ half way mark, it’s time to celebrate our successes and make plans for the future of social justice change. FUREE invites you to dance, laugh and play as we raise money to continue the important work of empowering marginalized communities to be the force of change and evolution in our society.
The night will be filled with throwbacks from music icons spanning decades and there will be classic games like dominoes, spades, UNO and much more. Food and drinks are included in the ticket price. At the end of the night, we have a raffle planned with AMAZING PRIZES!
Your ticket purchase and/or donation goes a long way to ensure we can continue to empower and strengthen our communities here in Brooklyn and throughout New York City.
