Testimony Writing Workshop

The DC Council is looking at game-changing legislation that will make our streets safer and move towards Vision Zero as a reality, not just a talking point. 

To ensure that this legislation passes, people who care about this need to show up and testify at the October 24th hearing for the Vision Zero Enhancement Omnibus Amendment Act of 2019. Before we show up, we need to make sure our testimony is impactful and our messaging is clear. 

So join us for a testimony writing working on October 15th from 6:00pm-8:00pm and get support and resources to write an effective testimony for the hearing. 

Sign up!

This is also a good opportunity to come together as a community, share ideas, and support one another in our creative writing process as we prepare for the big hearing! 

Don’t worry, we’ll bring pizza.

Our office is located at 2599 Ontario Rd NW, Washington, DC 20009. We have plenty of bike parking!
