Jon Chang - The Day My Dad Found Out I'm Bi-Polar / CTM (03) NY
Jon Chang, a Mental Health Advocate and Marketer recently named in Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for Marketing & Advertising, shares his experience with bi-polar disorder and how it has affected his relationship with his father.
Upcoming Speaker: Teri Yuan
"My Journey Getting To Woke AF And Why You Should Too"
(Come see Teri speak at Crushing The Myth (08), Oct. 26th in NY)
Teri is the host and producer of the weekly en(gender)ed podcast.
"I started en(gender)ed as a response to the advocacy work I do in New York City on behalf of survivors of domestic violence and coercive control. I am often one of a handful of survivor voices in the room, asking bold questions, and holding the participants accountable. I want to end gender and sex-based violence and oppression and believe that a first step is helping us all learn the same vocabulary and speak the same language."

Overstep Comedy's Halloween Adventure
Sunday, October 20th @ 8pm
The PIT (Striker Stage)
Overstep Comedy, NYC's new Asian-American sketch phenomenon, is here to increase diversity and kick ass. Come for an hour of scripted comedy skits and shenanigans. Overstep's squad of writer-actor-comedians sees laughter as not merely an escape, but as an entry point into difficult conversations, into something otherwise overlooked or considered unspeakable. They also make a lot of food references because they are hungry--for both food and social change!
Special host: Mic Nguyen (Asian, Not Asian podcast)
