Don't Tread On D.C.?

Don't Tread On D.C.?

You've all seen these signs littered all over the District.

The signs are simple: White background, red image of the city, and four lines that read in black "Congress: Don't Tread on DC!"---a phrase that the campaign's creators over at DCVote undoubtedly hope is a strong message.

We want to know what you think of the slogan.  Do you like it?  And if you don't, what would your slogan be?

Jamie Lee Curtis To Pay Tribute to Youth Who Have Demonstrated Resilience and Overcome Trauma In DC

This story comes to us from Sarah Harrell:

Golden Globe award-winning actress and New York Times bestselling children’s book author Jamie Lee Curtis will celebrate the sixth annual National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day at the “Building Resilience in Young Children Dealing with Trauma” program on May 3 in Washington, D.C. Awareness Day is an annual observance of the importance of caring for every child’s mental health sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). More than 100 public and private organizations and over 1,000 communities across the country will participate in local events and activities in celebration of Awareness Day.

 

Opening Doors for High School Girls

According to a report published by the National Center for Women & Information Technology, the number of women holding computer-related jobs peaked at 36% in 1991. It’s been in decline ever since. Considering how technology-dependent our society has become, that spells bad news. It’s especially concerning for an area filled with companies that deliver cutting edge products and services to the Federal government.

So how, then, do we turn this trend around and encourage young women to go into technical fields? Enter the Girls in Technology Mentor-Protégé program.

Girls in Technology helps high school girls develop skills needed to architect an academic and professional future in technology. It’s a volunteer organization that relies on the generosity of corporate sponsorships.
