Can't Stop the Serenity (CSTS) has been created to support Equality Now, a charity that "Firefly" creator Joss Whedon's mother was involved in. Founded in 1992, the organization works toward ending violence and protecting the basic human rights of woman and girls around the world.

How does CSTS work?
Fans of "Serenity" will get together this summer, starting this week, for screenings of "Serenity", in 34 american cities and other cities around the globe.

CSTS is run by browncoats on a voluntary basis which i find impressive considering the organisation it requires; this is one of the reasons i wanted to relay the information.
