Rahab’s Sisters is a nonprofit which works to serve those marginalized by poverty, houselessness, sex work, violence or substance use.

Every Friday, they open their doors to women and people whose gender identity makes them vulnerable, offering a hot meal, a safe space and radical hospitality.

On Monday, October 21, Portland’s improvisers are coming together to create a night of comedy right on the spot in an effort to raise money for Rahab’s Sisters.

This event is presented by Bridge City Improv, Comedy Really Cares and Portland Center Stage.

KBOO's Althea Billings spoke with Anneliese Davis, the Executive Director of Rahab’s Sisters, Amy Conway, the founder of Comedy Really Cares and Lisa Brosseau, a partner at Bridge City Improv.
