Along with being a time when many Muslims fast from dawn to dusk, Ramadan is a time for reflection, a re-dedication to bettering ourselves, spending time with family and friends, and … sharing food! A couple of my fellow Petworth friends and I are inviting you all to come out to a potluck iftar, the meal to break the fast each day, Thursday evening, June 22nd 7:30-9:30pm at Sherman Circle around sundown.

Family March from Sherman Circle to Petworth Library on Saturday, 1/21

Inauguration is happening on Friday, and the Women's March is set for Saturday, but it's not all happening down on the Mall. Petworth is having its own Family March on January 21st from 9:45am-11:00am for neighborhood children and families to show their support and solidarity with the Women's March on the National Mall. 

With the crowds and potential craziness that such a large, national march might entail but still wanting to participate, some Petworth parents are creating a local march that will be calmer and share with children the importance of community.

 "By marching together, we believe we are helping our children learn to use their voices and stand for what they believe in.”
