White House Community Forum in the neighborhood on Wednesday - ask White House staff!

Got anything you'd like to ask the White House? All Souls Church is hosting Michael Blake, White House Director of African American & Minority Business Outreach in the Office of Public Engagement to answer your questions. Sounds awesome. Here's the press release
This Wednesday, May 11 at 6:30 p.m., please join members of the DC community for a conversation with Michael Blake, White House Director of African American  & Minority Business Outreach in the Office of Public Engagement, who will discuss the Obama Administration's accomplishments and challenges, and take questions from the audience.

We invite you to sign up  for the event, where you may also submit questions in advance.  This is your chance to have your questions answered by the White House directly.  The purpose of this event is to make your voice heard, and we encourage you to attend with plans to join the conversation.

Do you want to know how the Obama Administration plans to protect DC Home Rule? Will the White House bargain with marriage equality and HIV-prevention programs in DC?  What has the White House actually accomplished?  This honest, open conversation with Mr. Blake will be driven by your questions and concerns.

The event will be held at All Souls Church  in Columbia Heights, at 2835 16th Street NW.  Please RSVP  and arrive early to guarantee a good seat (doors open at 6).  Following the conversation with Mr. Blake, participants are invited to take part in break-out sessions with other attendees to discuss concerns they have in common, which will then be forwarded to Mr. Blake's office for a response.
