Rescheduled Community Advocacy Day February 7th

Ward 4 Thrives is participating in a day of Community Advocacy this Monday February 7th from 9 am to 12 pm. We are joining our fellow city-wide coalition members to deliver a message to the Councilmembers and Mayor that we expect Wal-Mart and the city to Respect the residents of DC and the Choices of our communities.

Over 800 Ward 4 Residents have signed on to voice their opposition to a Wal-Mart in our ward. Let's deliver that message again, this time in person. Are you free Monday morning? Then come join us!

When - Monday February 7th 9 am to 12 noon (lunch is being generously provided by our local UFCW members)
Where - The Wilson Building downtown 1350 Pennsylvania Ave NW, meeting in the Lobby initially
Why - To tell the Councilmembers to make Wal-Mart Respect DC Residents and our Community choices
How - We will form teams by Ward to meet with Councilmembers. Each team will probably meet with 2 Councilmembers. You already know what you think, but additional materials from Ward 4 Thrives can be provided to you, just let us know.
Who - You! Your neighbors!

Email Michele or call (202)641-5546 if you are going to try and come so that we can have a head-count and know who to look out for.

Ward 4 Thrives is turning up the pressure. Help us keep it up!
