Browncoats from Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Eastern Ohio who attend the 10th annual Can’t Stop the Serenity charity screening of Serenity at the historic Hollywood Theater in Pittsburgh, PA this Saturday will have the opportunity to sign a hard copy of our petition to Elon Musk and SpaceX calling for a manned Dragon spacecraft named after the ship from Joss Whedon’s TV series Firefly and feature film Serenity.
For the third straight year, the Rivers and Bridges Brigade of the PA Browncoats, presenters of CSTS Pittsburgh events, are promoting Take Back the Sky at their CSTS Serenity screening. This year the petition will be located next to the “River’s Mind Readin’ Genius Trivia” game. Attendees who still have not signed our petition will be able to add their name to the over 2,000 signatures of Browncoats from all over the world who have voiced their desire to see a manned US spaceship named Serenity and help us reach our goal of 3,000 signatures by September 1.
Can’t Stop the Serenity organizes worldwide charity screenings and affiliate events to raise money for Equality Now, Joss Whedon’s charity of choice, which fights for women’s rights around the world. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Can’t Stop the Serenity, which has already raised more than $1,000,000 for Equality Now and other charitable causes. Pittsburgh is one of a select few cities that have held CSTS screenings every year since its inception in 2006, and they are also the only city that has actively promoted Take Back the Sky at its CSTS events.
We here at Take Back the Sky thank CSTS Pittsburgh and the PA Browncoats Rivers and Bridges Brigade for their willingness to help promote our cause, and we wish them a very successful event this Saturday. For more information about CSTS Pittsburgh, visit www.cstspgh.webs.com.
