Empower DC has already rallied and protested against the sale of D.C. public property twice in the last few months.
Last week, activists joined together in front of the Wilson Building. And in late March, they gathered by the office of Neil Albert, head of the city’s office of planning and economic development.
Now, it looks like they’re going for round III: This evening, a group from Empower DC will stand with signs in front of the Washington Hilton at the start of the D.C. Building Industry Association’s awards ceremony, according to the Washington Business Journal.
Their target doesn’t seem to be building community in general, but more specifically the honorees of the evening.
The association plans to present achievement awards to Mayor Adrian Fenty, and his “cronies,” as Empower DC calls them, Neil O. Albert, Linda Argo, Leila Finucane Edmonds, and Harriet Tregoning (click the link for the full titles).
