Wake to Washington

30,000 reasons to fire Jack Evans

Sketchy at best: An eyewitness says she saw her boyfriend, a lobbyist for a digital media company that has sought legislation in the Council, hand the Ward 2 Councilmember $30,000 in cash. (He also asked her to deliver it at other points.) He might be immune from parking tickets, but not ethics violations.

 

Here’s to Streets That Don’t Kill People....someday

There was a pretty sizeable rally outside the Wilson Building yesterday to push the Mayor and Council for safer streets faster, after the recent deaths of two cyclists on M St NW and H St NE. DDOT finally made adjustments to the M Street Cycletrack that could have saved a life had it been there a few weeks earlier. Reminder: if you want to report that FedEx truck that’s parked in the bike lane on your way to work, you should sign up for the fantastic Bike Lane Uprising, which recently spread to DC from Chicago.

 

Theater helps DACA locals find a voice

At theater camp Pasa Nuevo in Columbia Heights, about 80% of attendees are DACA recipients. Many students fear racial profiling, deportation, and separation from their families—Pasa Nuevo is a place where they learn not only how to produce a show, but how to tell their story and release stress.

   + Support DACA neighbors by following the DMV Sanctuary Congregation Network’s request to
call Mayor Bowser with a list of clear asks, including intervening with the Fairfield ICE office on behalf of the 12 DC residents detained last week.

Don’t drink and die

After a long decline, liver disease, "fueled by alcohol," is on the rise in our generation. Epidemiologists say this bump is timed with a rise in binge drinking, specifically, this millennium—as well as the global financial crisis. If a friend needs help, talk to them; if you need help, talk to your doctor.
