Tomorrow night, some members of DCTC are going to be attending a training called “How DC Works” presented by DC Jobs With Justice. It’s going to be a beneficial opportunity for DC residents to learn how to affect change and empower our communities to hold government accountable – especially as we head into another round of budget battles. So we encourage everyone to come out, too! Here is the information from JwJ:
