DemDaily: Strategy. Power. Justice. Tonight.

Strategy. Power. Justice. Those are the themes of the Midwest Academy, which has trained organizers for over forty years, and tonight honors some of our nation's most acclaimed progressive leaders.

More than 250 prominent activists will come together at the Sphinx Club to recognize four social justice heroes, and to re-energize and of course, organize!

Time: 6:00pm Cocktail Reception, 7:30pm Awards Program
Where: The Sphinx Club at Franklin Square
1315 K Street, NW, Washington, DC 20005

If ever there were a time to organize, it's now. In the coming year the rights of women, people of color, Muslims, labor, and LGBTQ individuals will come under attack. If you want to see the progressive movement fight back against hate, one of the most important things you can do today is to help get more trained organizers on the ground.
