Washington, D.C. (April 16, 2014) - Civil rights and social advocacy group Dream Defenders, known for their recent Florida Capitol sit-in to protest the state's "Stand Your Ground" laws will host a DC Supporter & Young Professional Social[1] in Washington, DC on Thursday, April 24, 2014. Friends & Supporters of Dream Defenders, DC Politicos, Young Professionals & Social advocates are all welcome. The event, which will be co-hosted by Urbane DC & Taste Good, will take place at RedRocks Neapolitan Bistro located in Washington, DC's historic H Street Corridor from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.


"This upcoming gathering is about getting to know the DC community and introducing Dream Defenders' culture, art, and campaign work," says the group's founder Phillip Agnew, who was recently named to the Grio's 100 list of African-American influencers. "We hope to unite, engage and encourage young professionals who are eager to make a difference within their community through their talents and skills.”


The event will also raise funds for the grassroots organization, which has trained thousands of student leaders throughout the country to take on the country's most pressing social issues through civic engagement and organizing. Dream Defenders has been featured in the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Huffington Post, and on MSNBC, CNN, CBS News, NBC News and ABC News.
