Please join us on Thursday, September 14, 2017 at our annual awards reception as we set aside an evening to honor five outstanding individuals who have worked with DC Appleseed to improve the city and the region.

The evening will begin with a reception on the rooftop terrace at The Mead Center for American Theater, Arena Stage (1101 6th St. SW) from 6:00pm – 7:30pm.  After the reception, we will adjourn to the Kogod Cradle Theater for the evening’s program.

Our keynote speaker will be Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-MD).  Congressman Raskin has been a strong advocate of D.C. voting rights and is an ally of the District on many of the issues we care about.

We will also have a panel discussion with local leaders who are helping the District and the region deal with the actions of Congress and the Presidential administration.

DC Appleseed

DC Appleseed is working to solve many of the tough public policy problems facing this area, from reducing HIV/AIDS, to cleaning up the Anacostia River, to obtaining voting rights for D.C. residents, to promoting workforce development and affordable housing.  We currently are working on 14 different projects and on all of these projects, we receive tremendous pro bono support from area law and accounting firms.  Washington Post columnist Colby King has called us the go-to organization in Washington for public policy issues.
