Irish Stand is a grassroots movement devoted to civil rights protection for all immigrants. 

Human Rights Activist Kerry Kennedy joins Irish author Colum McCann, Irish comedian Maeve Higgins, and feminist writer Mona Eltahawy to celebrate, through song and spoken word, immigration and those stories that unify rather than divide. Among the evening’s special guest speakers and artists are:

  • Joan WalshThe Nation and CNN Contributor
  • Carol Jenkins, Veteran News Anchor
  • Kathryn Gallagher, Singer
  • Aodhán Ó Ríordáin, Irish Senator
  • Colum Eastwood, Irish MP

Irish Stand is a grassroots movement devoted to civil rights protection for all immigrants. Ireland’s history of migration and overcoming discrimination positions it uniquely as a nation that understands and is familiar with division and borders. We believe in compassionate resistance to hateful rhetoric and seek to support vulnerable communities under threat through active campaigning.

Proceeds from the event will support the work of the New York Civil Liberties Union Foundation.
