Switch n’ Play’s MOXIE: a benefit for RAICES, TX

August 11 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm

$7

MOXIE: n. force of character, determination, nerve

On August 11th, Switch n’ Play brings you MOXIE: a night of drag, burlesque and queer performance that will bring performers of all experience levels together on the same stage!

This show, a continuation of Switch n’ Play’s legendary Open Drag Nights first launched in 2006, fosters drag & queer community in Brooklyn — creating space for performers to workshop acts, debut new performance personas, explore gender performance in a supportive environment, and make new friends.

***Proceeds will benefit RAICES, Texas***

RAICES promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees in Texas. Founded in 1986 as the Refugee Aid Project by community activists, RAICES is a frontline organization in the roiling debate about immigration and immigrants in the world. As an organization that combines expertise developed from the daily practice of immigration law with a deep commitment to advocacy, RAICES is unique among immigration organizations. A diverse staff of 130 attorneys, legal assistants, and support staff provide consultations, direct legal services, representation, assistance and advocacy to communities in Texas and to clients after they leave the state. In 2017, RAICES staff closed 51,000 cases at no cost to the client. Our advocacy and commitment to change are driven by the clients and families we serve every day as our attorneys and legal assistants provide legal advocacy and representation in an immigration system that breaks apart families and leaves millions without pathways to legal status.
