CRM's Back At King St Blues Tuesday

CRM is a fun group of young people (20 and 30's) who are community-minded and like to both get out and volunteer as well as socialize.

This month's "monthly meetup" (happy hour) will be held tomorrow, Tuesday, October 7th, from 7-9 p.m. at King Street Blues in Courthouse. CRMers will be in the back bar (look for us wearing the green CRM t-shirts and if you have one, please wear it! King Street Blues is located at 2300 Arlington Blvd, Arlington, VA right outside of the Courthouse Metro Stop on the Orange line.

Because October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, our special guest will be Candice Lopez, the Community Education Outreach Manager at Doorways for Women and Families and the Co-Chair of Arlington's Project PEACE. She will be there to discuss what these two organizations are doing to address domestic violence in our community and she will have information on volunteer opportunities.

We will also have a representative from Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) to speak with those interested in energy policy and global warming. CCAN is the first grassroots non-profit to fight global warming specifically in Maryland, DC and Virginia. They will talk about how they plan to get Virginia moving toward a clean energy future and what the 1Sky platform means (for the country and specifically Virginia).

Everyone is welcome! Hope to see you there!

Great event! King Street Blues is always a great host. I was surprised we fit that many people into that small a space!
