Come one, come all to the very first First Fridays fundraiser (that's a whole lotta F's, eh?) at Acre 121 in Columbia Heights, brought to you by Feminists United Against Trump (FU Trump). We'll be selling wrist bands for $5 each from 5:30 to 7:30PM that will give you happy hour discounts on drinks all night long. 100% of the proceeds from wrist bands go to ACLU!

(FYI: Each month will have an entirely new organization/cause that we are fundraising for and we will ask YOU for your input each month!)

Also, there will be information on the amazing work the ACLU does available (such as their recent work to protect the rights of people impacted by Trump's Muslim ban) and information on ways you can get involved and make a difference.

Hope to see you all there for a night of good drinks, good food, good company, and a great cause!

UPDATE: A few important bits of information for this Friday:

1. Wrist bands will be sold at the door for $5 each (CASH) from 5:30 until 7:30PM; 100% of wrist band sales will go to ACLU and you will get happy hour prices all night long, for as long as you want to stay at Acre 121.

2. Please bring EXACT CHANGE for the wrist bands so we can keep people moving through the door if at all possible (or perhaps consider throwing in any extra $$ for the ACLU).

3. In anticipation of the possible large numbers that may turn out for the event, we will keep this event page updated as the evening progresses, so please check the page before heading over in case we have any important updates.

4. Bear in mind that this is our very first event. We are just a group of civic-minded friends who wanted to take action and are learning as we go; depending on the turnout for this event, we will try to get a larger venue for next time if need be so we can accommodate all of you and have an even bigger impact!

We are truly in awe of your enthusiasm and want to take full advantage of your energy and passion to benefit worthy causes and fight the assaults on our liberties and democracy together with all of you! Thank you in advance and please do not hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns!
