Join us to raise start-up funds for the Chicago Refugee Women’s Co-Operative. Comedy entertainment will be provided by Chicago-based comedians Joey Villagomez, Melissa Richelle, Kyle Scanlan, and Odinaka Ezeokoli. Appetizers will be included in the ticket price of $20.
The Chicago Refugee Women’s Sewing Co-Operative is developing under the guidance of Muslim-Iranian fashion blogger Hoda Katebi. This sewing cooperative, the first of its kind in the USA, runs with a holistic approach to labor: along with encouraging and actively building community among the women involved, this space includes free childcare, on-site translation services, transportation, free legal services, and payment that far exceeds minimum wage for women who are highly-skilled in sewing.
