About Babefest

 WHERE ARE MY SISTERS? WHERE ARE MY BROTHERS?
WHERE IS MY FAMILY Who TAKEs CARE OF EACH OTHER?

Started in Buffalo, NY in 2016, the 3rd edition of this traveling festival of music, community, and activism takes place in Brooklyn, NY to benefit EMILY's List, a political action committee that elects pro-choice Democratic women into office.

lack of voter participation has lead us to the brink of disaster. 
without speaking in hyperbole, voting this november is more crucial than ever before.
democratic principles, already eroded, can collapse. 
america is not immune. 
yes, they are going to make it as difficult for us as they can.
but we can overwhelm the corruption with our numbers.
let’s rise up by all simply stepping into a voting booth on the same day.
let’s think of each other and feel the power of acting together.
let's get this party started!
the great irony is that the power of a revolution of peace and justice has been right here in our hands all along.
use it or lose it, baby.


COME SUPPORT EMILY’S LIST AT BABEFEST SEPTEMBER 21!
VOTE NOVEMBER 6!

Run To Win

Babefest will also offer a half-day training session through EMILY’s List, their "Run To Win” program for pro-choice Democratic women thinking about running for elected office. EMILY’s List is the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, having raised over $500 million to support pro-choice Democratic women candidates – making them one of the most successful political organizations ever. Their grassroots community of over five million members helps Democratic women wage competitive campaigns – and win. At this training, EMILY’s List will guide you through the nuts and bolts of planning your run, teach you how to get your house in order, and get ready to take the first steps toward running -- and winning.

The training takes place on Saturday, September 22nd. Registration check-in will be from 9am to 10am, and the training will go from 10am to 3pm (this includes breaks).
