Join DC Alumni from Marjory Stoneman Douglas for a Fundraiser to Support Victims & Families

Yesterday, when I posted about my commitment to doing my part to help end gun violence, I received a response from a reader who is also an alum of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (MSD). He let me know there are quite a few of them in the DC area, and they have come together to organize a fundraiser to support the victims and families of the shootings in Parkland, FL.

This Tuesday, February 27, join the DC Chapter of #MSDSTRONG at Tony & Joe’s in Georgetown from 6-8pm. U.S. Senator Bill Nelson and DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, among other honored guests and speakers, will also be in attendance to honor the victims.

Since the tragedy, over 11,000 MSD alumni nationwide have come together to create the Mobilizing MSD Alumni group. The DC area group is one of 16 local chapters throughout the country that are planning fundraisers, vigils, rallies, and calls to action. There are dozens of MSD DC alumni and this is just the start of their work — there will be more activities in the near future.
