6pm – 11pm
85 South Oxford Street
Brooklyn, NY 11217
Price: $10 at the door, $5 if you confirm on this event page, FREE if

Speaking of NY2NO it is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. They are a youth-led,
consensus-based organization creating a network of young people
interested in organizing and mobilizing across New York City. NY2NO
works in solidarity with those most affected by the social, racial, and
economic inequalities in both New York and New Orleans. Through this,
the youth break down barriers and work together to combat racism and
classism and help move us towards a more egalitarian society. For more
