The Midway Cafe and Queeraoke have partnered with BARCC to bring you this event: Sing out for Survivors. We know that LGBTQ folks experience higher rates of sexual violence, abuse, and harassment, and this needs to change now.

Join us to raise awareness, raise our voices, and sing out for survivors in our community. This is your chance to take a stand against sexual violence, support BARCC’s free and confidential resources, and win really awesome raffles and prizes!

We will have:
* A resource table with information about BARCC services and ways you can get involved (oh, and pretty sweet SWAG)
* Raffle prizes including a Lumos helmet (https://lumoshelmet.co/) to protect your head biking around Boston, gift cards to local restaurants, movie theaters, and more!

And, we can pretty much guarantee that Destiny Child’s “Survivor’ will be sung at least once, if not more!
