CASS’s 6th Anniversary Party
“LIGHTS, CAMERA, COLLECTIVE ACTION!”
WHEN: 6:00-8:30pm, Thursday, April 16
WHERE: Room & Board; 1840 14th Street NW DC
You’re cordially invited to join us for Collective Action for Safe Spaces’ 3rd annual signature community appreciation event, “Lights, Camera, Collective Action!”
Our small but dedicated staff has accomplished so much together in the past year. We launched RightRidesDC, a program that provides free, safe rides home for women and LGBT people, passed landmark sexual assault reforms in DC and conducted 20 community workshops! Come celebrate with us, and hear what else we have up our sleeves for 2015.
A ticket will ensure that you enjoy…

We’re working with a bunch of local businesses, artists, musicians, and activists to make this event the most fabulous party of the year. Check back here for a list of sponsors, entertainers, and vendors at this year’s event!
All ticket proceeds go to ensuring access to free, safe rides home through programs like RightRides DC and long-term solutions to build safe streets through trainings and workshops, policy advocacy and cultural activism.
Not Local or Can’t Attend?
Don’t fret! You can still donate or sponsor one of our hard-working volunteers through our ticket sales link. Your donation will go straight to work in our programming to build a safer DC, including community workshops, bystander intervention training, timely policy advocacy, and more!
