It’s the end of an era – Obama’s final night in office is on January 19th. We may not know what the future will bring – but we can know that we are taking action!
Now is the time to rise up and push back – and nothing feels better than joining together with friends to make a difference. Let’s show the world that we are not going to sit calmly while the things that make America great are dismantled.
So, to keep the HOPE of Obama’s presidency alive, and to counteract the disasters to come…I invite you to party with me!
Keeping the HOPE Alive: a Fundraising Party for Union of Concerned Scientists
Thursday, January 19th (Obama’s final night in office)
7:30 – 10:00 PM
1346 Mass Avenue
$20 suggested donation
Space is limited – please RSVP at https://jan19hope.eventbrite.com
• Lots of food and drink
• Obama selfie station
• Cash bar (beer and wine)
• Amazing fundraising raffle
• Piñata – get out some pre-inaugural aggression!
• A music mix that will make you laugh and cry
Can’t join us? Please consider a tax-deductible donation to Union of Concerned Scientists via my crowdrise page (here)!
I’m also seeking donations of raffle items – gift certificates, weekends away, services, or even a really good re-gift – so please get in touch if you can help.
I hope we can come together on January 19th – consider it the first of many ways we will fight to protect what’s important during the next four years!

PS: Why Union of Concerned Scientists? It was so hard to choose between so many values that are under attack by a Trump presidency. However, Trump’s pick of a climate-change denier to lead the EPA sealed the deal for us! There is too much that I appreciate about UCS to fit here, but they are really at the forefront when it comes to advocacy for our planet’s most urgent problems (which suddenly became more urgent on November 8th).
