  • ONE DC Learning Circle

    • Wednesday, May 01, 2019 at 06:00 PM
    • ONE DC Black Workers & Wellness Center
    • 3 people are going

    ONE DC's Learning Circle is a space for ONE DC members to come together to learn about the legacy of of progressive action that we are carrying forward. By engaging with text, media, and storytelling, we learn from one another and our predecessors about guiding principles and ideals of racial equity, cooperative economics, and community building.

    The content for our next meeting will focus on Ella Jo Baker.  In many places in which ONE DC articulates our values, we cite Ella Jo Baker as being a guiding influence, such as here. She was a lead organizer in progressive organizing for 50 years, although often her contributions were under-recognized. 
    For pre-reading (optional, not required): 
    1. "Developing Community Leadership," 3-page essay by Ella Jo Baker
    2. Excerpt from Chapter 5 of Collective Courage where Ella Jo Baker's work with the Young Negroes Co-operative League is discussed (pages 112-122)
    During the Learning Circle on May 1
    • We'll review some biographical information about Ella Jo Baker.
    • After, we'll watch and discuss this 30-minute speech she gave at an event in her honor in 1968.

    No pre-reading is required to attend - all are welcome! Gatherings of the Learning Circle are the first Wednesday of each month, from 6-8pm at the Black Workers and Wellness Center. Contact Gabrielle Newell (gnewell14@gmail.com) for more information.

  • Happy Hour Fundraiser


    Come out to support ONE DC's work at a fun and lively night at Madam's Organ! $1 from any drink or food item will go toward ONE DC! Listen to live music while helping us create and preserve racial and economic equity in DC.

    You can also support by purchasing ONE DC t-shirts, hoodies, and tote bags; enter to win a raffle; and connect with fellow ONE DC members & supporters. Through our People's Platform, we are building a movement of low-income and working class DC residents of color and people who share our values and vision. We seek to organize, educate, fight for and win truly affordable housing, sustaining work, and wellness for all in DC. We envision a DC that is equitable and just place to live for all of its residents. We demand that the District of Columbia become accountable to the needs of its residents, not developers and corporations, and not just the 1%.

    The Thursday’s Nonprofits Profit at Madam’s Organ fundraiser program began in 2005 as a way for Madam’s Organ to help local nonprofits raise money and awareness for their causes.
