Join the Ward 6 Democrats tomorrow night for a salon conversation with Maurice Cook, Executive Director of the Ward 6 Mutual Aid Network.
Serve Your City focuses on advocating to address systemic racism and inequity in DC. They won the 2020 Civic Pride "Brickie" from Councilmember Charles Allen's office; and they have distributed more than $30,000 worth of food to more than 2,000 families; provided students with laptops, backpacks and internet service; and much more.
Date: Tuesday, January 19, 2021
Time: 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. (note the early start time)
Location: Zoom, link provided on registration
Mr. Cook will share information about the background of the group, what they mean by "solidarity not charity" and "we keep us safe," and will talk about the particular challenges and needs in our community and what the Ward 6 Mutual Aid Network is doing to address them. There will be time for Q&A with Mr. Cook, and we'll provide information about specific things you can to do help.
