#StoriesofStrength: Sharma Shields

FIGHT FOR OUR LIVES returns with #StoriesofStrength to support chronically ill and immunocompromised artists. Our first performer – SHARMA SHIELDS — is a novelist and short story writer. She’s fundraising for the National MS Society. Support her efforts by donating to her team at MONSTER FIGHTERS.

SHARMA SHIELDS shares a wild short story about what it means to live with multiple sclerosis while bra shopping. You read correctly. There’s a condor, too! Learn more about Sharma Shields at


Fight for Our Lives is a performance series advocating for communities targeted by divisive politics and systemic oppression (queer, trans, incarcerated, migrants, womxn, people of color).

By showcasing local artists, writers, and performers, our series also benefits mission-driven nonprofit organizations. Our goal is to connect nonprofit opportunities to audiences and artists across the Puget Sound area.

Fight for Our Lives is grassroots-led and time-limited until January 20, 2021—Inauguration Day.
