The first Friday of every month, Bounce Milwaukee, Milwaukee’s premiere place for bounce castles, laser tag, indoor rock climbing, and arcade fun, hosts karaoke to benefit a different local, progressive charity. For December they’ve chosen FORGE!
There’s no cover to enter, and kids (and those under 21) are welcome from 8-9. After 9pm, things switch into 21+ mode. At least $1 from every drink (including mocktails!) sold at the bar from 8pm until the music stops will benefit the FORGE! FORGE staff will be on hand to let you know how you can assist or volunteer to support their work.
FORGE is a national transgender anti-violence organization, founded in 1994. Since 2009, we have been federally funded to provide direct services to transgender, gender non-conforming and gender non-binary survivors of sexual assault. Since 2011, FORGE has served as the only transgender-focused organization federally funded to provide training and technical assistance to providers around the country who work with transgender survivors of sexual assault, domestic and dating violence, and stalking. Our role as a technical assistance provider has allowed us to directly see key continued and emerging challenges many agencies are experiencing in serving sexual assault survivors of all genders.
Please, no Hotel California. We know it seems like a good idea, but it’s really long.
