Last Friday afternoon, we received some sunshine during all that rain!
HyeSook Chung, Executive Director of DC Action, was one of seven extraordinary women to receive this year’s Washington Area Toyota Dealers Tribute to Working Women Award during a luncheon at the National Press Club.
The DC One Fund 2013 Campaign begins today and DC Action for Children has been chosen as one of the nonprofit organizations that district government employees and retirees can support. This campaign is a unique opportunity for roughly 41,290[i] district employees to give back to charities and organizations that make a difference within the district.
Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending a charity fair at the Department of Defense Inspector General’s office in Virginia. DC Action is thrilled to participate in the Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capitol Area (CFCNCA) – an exciting opportunity for us to engage with federal employees - individuals committed to helping others. The CFCNCA is the local campaign of the national Combined Federal Campaign for federal employees of the Washington Metropolitan Area.
Editor's Note: DC Action for Children is pleased to welcome Gabriela, our new Research Fellow. Welcome to our team, Gabby!
While volunteering for two months in Medellín, Colombia with DukeEngage, I witnessed firsthand how local community activism and government support worked together to transform one of the most dangerous cities in the world.
