July 30th is World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, a day we set aside to remember and stand in solidarity with victims of human trafficking and modern day slavery. This year, Free the Slaves is hosting a Freedom Ride to commemorate the day, raise funds to fight trafficking, and spread awareness about the issue.
The event will be held at the Logan Circle Zengo Cycle from 3:00 to 3:50pm, and all proceeds will go to Free the Slaves. Ethical fashion brand Senhoa will be there too selling jewelry after the ride until 4:30!

The DC Arts Center third annual “Experience Auction” Fundraiser
The things you get to do are better than stuff you have to have.
The DC Arts Center, one of Washington, DC’s most respected art galleries, is continuing its tradition of proving that experiences are indeed more valuable than things. While the best things in life may not be free, doing is quite often better than having. The event will raise necessary funds for the DC Arts Center, one of Washington, DC’s most unique arts centers.
Many fundraising auctions are a basic live auction and silent auction format featuring donated works of art. The DCAC Experience Auction offers unique, once in a lifetime experiences. Offering experiences as opposed to static works of art helps prevent distortion of an artwork’s fair market value.
Experiences up for auction include a behind the scenes tour of a Theater, an in-home performance by a vocalist, the opportunity to collaborate with guerrilla painters, and many more one-of-a-kind experiences created just for the Experience Auction.
The auction takes place Thursday May 21st, 2015 starting at 7pm at the historic Kennedy-Warren building located at 3133 Connecticut Ave, NW Washington, DC 20008. There will be a DJ spinning great music, h’ors doeuvres, live performances, the silent and live auction, and a cash bar. Valet parking will be provided.
Join us in collecting memories all while supporting a great cause. Tickets for the DCAC Experience Auction are $90 for DCAC members and $120 for non-members. The non-member fee includes a membership to DCAC. Tickets can be purchased at: http://bitly.com/1O7UMh4
About DC Arts Center:
Located at 2438 18th Street, NW in Washington, DC the District of Columbia Arts Center serves the Washington, DC area by presenting high-caliber challenging works, encouraging professionalism among artists, and by providing a forum for education and cultural exchange. DCAC was founded in 1989 as an alternative arts center for local artists in response to eroding support for local artists. Since then our 800 square foot gallery and 50 seat black box theater have been a hub of creativity in the visual and performing arts. Artists of all types, including poets, painters, actors, storytellers, sculptors and performance artists, have been drawn to DCAC.
So I recently made the decision to remove my radiator heat system and replace it by adding a gas furnace to my pending central air install. I was wondering if somebody could recommend a contractor to pull the entire system (radiators, pipes, boiler) from my two story house and cart it down to Community Forklift or a similar organization. Also, any general advice from somebody who has had this done would be helpful as well. Thanks!
And just to be clear I do prefer radiant heat to forced air. My radiant system would need extensive work to be functional and efficient. The whole system would need to be repiped, I would need to add a radiator to the kitchen extension and the boiler takes up a 4×3 room in my living space. Instead of spending many thousands of dollars to redo the entire system I’m cutting my losses and installing central ac/gas heat from a rooftop system.
