Via Feministing: The Younger Women’s Task Force is organizing a get-together to mark the launch of Stand Up for D.C. Women!, a “project that aims to raise awareness about injustices in the treatment of sexual assault victims by law enforcement and health care institutions in D.C.” While that’s not the most feel-good party theme in the world, the beers at CommonWealth might help to lighten the mood. Here’s the info:

Monday, Jan. 5, 2009 (that’s today), 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The CommonWealth Pub, 1400 Irving Street NW, Washington, D.C.

YWTF says that the Stand Up project aims to encourage victims of sexual assault to report the crimes, and to encourage D.C. organizations to make that process as easy as possible. Cheers to that!
