Activist Awards

Activist Awards 2009 - David & Chantal & VA

Every year, the Washington Peace Center throws the activist party of the season!

The Activist Awards Grassroots Gala is a wonderful event where we celebrate DC activists' hard work and successes in creating a more just and peaceful world.  We honor local activists and throw a party for the entire community.  This is the final celebration of the Peace Center's 50th anniversary year, so it'll be extra special!
