“Dear PoPville,

I feel I can and should do more for some of the issues that I want to support. For the Women’s March, I hosted a bunch of college students (basically just gave them a place to sleep and shower and store their belongings while marching). But I had a friend of a friend of an organizer situation there. There is a host/activist matching service that is associated with the climate march called peoples housing (dot) com.

Have any PoPville readers used this service, or does anyone have any advice? (more…)

From an email:

“We are hosting our annual kickoff fundraiser at Ten Tigers Parlour on Monday, May 1st from 6:30-9:30 pm (3813 Georgia Avenue, NW). The weekly Saturday market will begin again on May 6.

We will have a silent auction, drink specials and a great gathering of neighbors. Funds raised will enable the market to enhance our existing Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Women, Infants and Children (WIC) bonus/match program, host special events to promote community engagement and attract more neighbors, and support part-time market staff to coordinate operations and programming.

Tickets are $15, or 2 for $25 and can be purchased here.”

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.
