About this event

The main attraction this month will be a panel discussion featuring three distinguished guests: Anita Shelton (Chair of the DC Coalition to End Violence), Ron Hampton (Retired MPD Officer) and Trayon WardEight White (Ward 8 Community Leader) for a discussion about violence and police-community relations in D.C.; how they connect to racism and poverty; multifaceted and community-oriented approaches to ending violence; the Mayor's new crime proposal; and how we as community activists can get involved.

Our political director Jerry Clark is the moderator, and Kendrick Jackson of General Assembly will also say a few words to introduce the location and General Assembly's community engagement activities.

General Assembly is offering adult-friendly beverages, and DC for Democracy is providing pizza and some other food TBD, but you are more than welcome to bring your own as well. The program will start at 7:00, so come before that to eat, drink and be merry!
