Save Our Safety Net Walking Tour

On April 21 2011 Save Our Safety Network and SWOT is organizing a walking tour highlighting social service agencies in Columbia Heights whose communities will be affected by the mayor's budget cuts. We have invited Councilmembers Graham and Biddle to attend and hope Ward 1 residents will learn about vital community organizations and share their feelings on the budget.

We'll start at the Columbia Heights Metro at 5:30pm and the tour goes until 6:30. From 6:30-7:30 we're having a happy hour at Alero restaurant that is near the Gala Theatre. This will be an opportunity to pass out information about your agencies, hear about the history of the neighborhood, and talk with Ward 1 residents and council staff. At this point we will also hand/send council staff letters from organizations about how budget cuts affect them, and we'll post the letters on the SOS blog as well. You are invited to write a letter as well! Please see the flier for more information.
