NEEDED: Troublemakers for Justice!

Justice has never been easily or smoothly achieved. When we all said goodbye to Nelson Mandela this year, we remember that he fought. He agitated. He organized. He strove to make his country more just, and won. The spirit that drove him was apparent early on -- when he was born, he was given the forename Rolihlahla -- Xhosa for "troublemaker."

ONE DC wants all of you to get out there and make some trouble.
