From a press release:

“On June 30, DCBeer.com is teaming up with Helping Oppressed Peoples Survive (HOPS) to organize the local beer community with “1 Dollar, 1 Call, 1 Purpose” in support of #FamiliesBelongTogether. Participating breweries, bars, and restaurants across the District and surrounding metro area are joining up to support the national day of action by donating proceeds to organizations working on behalf of immigrants and encouraging patrons to make their voices heard.

What: “1 Dollar, 1 Call, 1 Purpose” encourages the D.C. beer community to come together to raise funds for local and national organizations working to reunite families along the U.S. border and providing support to immigrant communities. Patrons can also take action in support of #FamiliesBelongTogether by contacting their elected officials. Share how you’re participating with #DCBrewsFightsBack. Breweries, bars, and restaurants that want to join the continually expanding list of participating venues should reach out to the organizers via the contact information below.

When: Primarily June 30, 2018 (see specifics below and more details at DCBeer.com)

Why: The need to help the children at the border who have been separated from their families is urgent and calls on us to act. The D.C. beer community can be a powerful force for good, and every bit of funding and political action helps to provide the legal and humanitarian aid that these families need. Together, bars, restaurants, breweries, and fans of good beer and cider will come together this weekend to show their commitment to the idea that families belong together.”
