    Description:

    MoCo Comrade Steve's neighbors are holding a fundraiser for Hans Riemer. Since their addresses are very similar and some fundraiser attendees may end up at Steve's house by mistake, Steve has invited DSA comrades and other activists to come over and party in his front yard. We will have a fact sheet about Hans for people to read and consider before voting for County Executive in the upcoming Democratic Primary. Steve notes this is free, and "just bring yourself and maybe some beer or wine or a dessert if the spirit moves you. I’ll be grilling with options for vegans and omnivores." RSVP to receive the address.

Defund MPD

Here in DC, militarized policing is terrorizing black and brown communities instead of keeping people safe. Its bloated budget starves our communities of resources and diverts money from non-police violence reduction programs. You can send Mayor Bowser and the D.C. Council a letter here demanding we fund social programs that directly benefit the people of DC
