WHAT: FIERCE, a youth‐led organization building the leadership and power of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) youth of color in NYC, the Kiki Coalition and Friends of Hudson River Park proudly present the Know Your Rights Ball on Pier 46 this Saturday, August 11, 2012.
For the past four years, FIERCE has organized a youth‐led ball on the pier—a major victory in FIERCE’s Safe Space Saves Lives Campaign to ensure safe public space for LGBTQ youth of color in a continuously gentrified and heavily policed West Village.
