We're not just raising money. Or even "awareness"! We're raising the VISIBILITY of the MAJORITY of dudes who are willing to take action to make violence and discrimination against women unacceptable. We're raising our voices together, and we're raising a GLASS (specifically, two drinks, minimum) to a future in which everyone is equal, and all jokes are funny. All proceeds will help build the Breakthrough Generation: the generation that will make violence against women unacceptable.

An evening of comedy presented by Dean Obeidallah and Breakthrough, a global human rights organization working to make violence and discrimination against women unacceptable.
