Join us for the activist party of the season! This December, the Washington Peace Center will host the 7th annual Activist Awards Grassroots Gala where we celebrate DC activists' hard work and successes in creating a more just and peaceful world.
Dust off your tutu and party shoes because there will be great music and performances, fun dancing, free food, cash bar and lots of inspiring progressive activists who deserve a night to party. Pull out your 80's tux, prettiest cocktail dress or favorite pair of jeans, because this is a Grassroots Gala. Please join us!
