Event description

Description

Washington D.C.’s broken criminal justice system has reached a tipping point. It’s past time for our city’s lawmakers to address the discrimination, violence, and racial disparities in our system that drive increasing inequality and marginalize communities of color.

Join us as we ask candidates for Council Chair (Ed Lazere, Phil Mendelson) and the At-Large member (Anita Bonds, Marcus Goodwin, Jeremiah Lowery) exactly how they will advance criminal justice reform if they are elected to serve our city.

Doors open at 5:30; seats will be reserved until 5:45 p.m. for individuals who reserve a space ahead of time through Eventbrite. After 5:45 p.m., seats will be offered to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis.

ASL interpretation, Spanish language translation, and child care will be available.

The event space holds 325 people. We will also have an overflow room with a live feed that can hold an additional 130 people.

This forum is a non-lobbying and non-electioneering event.

The First Congregational UCC is located downtown near the Metro Center (red, blue, orange and silver lines) and Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro stations (red, yellow, and green lines). There are also several bus lines (P6, D6, 30N, 30S, 32, 33, 34, 36) and parking garages nearby.
