There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.

In late March, Empower DC coordinated a protest against the city’s plan to redevelop 11 school sites, according to this Washington Business Journal article. But that was nothing in comparison to what the group has lined up for tomorrow in front of the Wilson Building.  Here’s some information from Empower DC’s website:
