Rally for Public Power! DC Council: Which side are you on?

Start: Wednesday, June 08, 2022 5:00 PM

End: Wednesday, June 08, 2022 6:15 PM

Location:Pepco Headquarters701 9th St. NW, Washington, DC 20001 US

Host Contact Info: wepowerdc@gmail.com

Join us to protest Pepco's greed and hear from DC Councilmembers and candidates who are committed to transitioning the District toward public power.

DC’s electricity system should serve the public, not private profit. Pepco, our investor-owned electric utility, leaves our low-income neighbors in the dark by shutting off electricity and burdening residents with debt, fails to meet DC’s climate goals, and is unaccountable to public decision making.

Location: We'll gather outside the south side of MLK Library then march over to Pepco's headquarters across the street. The Gallery Place-Chinatown metro stop (Green, Yellow, Red lines) is across the street (7th and G entrance).

Accessibility: This demonstration will be wheelchair accessible (all on sidewalks). The speakers and activities will be in English with no Spanish or ASL simultaneous translation.

(Feel free to join some of us afterward 6:30-8pm for the DC Punk Archive Library Rooftop Show back at MLK Library!)
