On May 17th from 6:30-9pm, the Washington Peace Center will host the 12th Annual Activist Awards Grassroots Gala with a special theme of keep fighting DC! We will celebrate DC activists’ hard work, resistance, and victories in the face of escalating oppression.
We will have performances, free food, and a room full of inspiring activists and our movement family. Please join us!

• $25 allows for WPC to provide equipment to 1 local group or allow one person to attend Global2Local Connections program to connect local struggles to global struggles.
• $50 will cover the cost of attendance for 2 people for the DC Trainers Network skillshare each month so they can build, make connections, and grow as an activist!
• $75 allows us to host a rapid response convening after crisis moments to better coordinate efforts and provide a space for people to plug in
• $100 donation partially allows us to keep our calendar of social justice events updated to coordinate mobilizations and actions in the District so that you can find your favorite social justice events and continue to feel connected to local movements (we feature 40-90 events each month on the calendar)

We also invite your organization, group, or business to purchase an Ad to feature your work in our 2017 Activist Awards Program to demonstrate your group’s commitment to peace and justice AND help us to cover the costs of this wonderful and inspiring event! If you run a business, this is an invaluable opportunity for you to show that you support progressive causes and reach out to many of the most active organizers in the DC area, who often base their shopping on political beliefs.
