Free the Slaves Freedom Ride!

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!

"End the Awkward: Focus on the Person, Not the Disability – Register for July 15

The “End the Awkward” project is a one-day campaign led by DC government on July 15 that empowers the public and businesses to share information about disability issues, and to take a pledge to raise awareness and better understand them. The participants are provided a pin that prompts people to ask about how to “end the awkward,” as well as talking points the participant can use to respond. The talking points are intended to instruct people on how to act respectfully toward people with disabilities without being awkward, and are varied in length so they are useful in several scenarios. The project intends to quickly engage people who do not typically think about disability issues.

DC government and 14 partner organizations and agencies are encouraging members of the public and businesses to participate! If you register (FREE!) by July 8 for the July 15 event, you will receive a participant package in the mail that includes:

• “End the Awkward” pin;
• Talking Points about how to “end the awkward”; and
• FAQ sheet of instructions and additional information.

Register
Members of the public can register here: http://endtheawkwardDC.eventbrite.com.

Attached is the event description in detail and the “End the Awkward” pin design.
