First, the ERC has launched its “5,000 Strong” summer membership campaign. The ERC hopes to reach its goal of 5,000 members this summer. It’s free to join, however, new and existing members that donate $50 or more will receive an ERC “swag bag” full of ERC materials! Keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter for updates throughout the campaign.
In addition, the ERC will be participating in the 3rd Annual D.C. Africa Festival this Saturday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Banneker Community Center. Staff from the ERC’s Immigrant Rights and Disability Rights Programs will be handing out brochures and information to help individuals protect themselves from discrimination.
Finally, the ERC is looking for Fall interns! Do you want to make a difference in people’s lives while advancing civil rights for all? Apply for the Fall 2012 Civil Rights Internships and Communications Internship. For more information, please visit our website.
Enjoy the weekend and thank you for help in advancing civil rights for all!
