Onward Together has a simple goal: to connect organizations in the DC area with the people who are eager to work toward progressive social justice for the next four years (and beyond).
After Election Day, there was an overwhelming wave of support for the people, causes, and organizations that could be threatened under the new administration. DC is filled with countless opportunities to volunteer for worthy causes, and also filled with driven, politically-engaged, caring people who are invested in our future. This event should be an easy way to connect people to new volunteer opportunities and to raise awareness and involvement.
