DC Day Round-up

The New York Times also took photos and interviewed survivors from First Response Action - we hope they will run an article tomorrow. In the meantime, here are two recent news pieces:

In the afternoon we went to the Hill for some encouraging meetings with congressional supporters, and we have an even busier day tomorrow before the hearing on Wednesday. Running on adrenaline and hope that we can make a genuine difference in the lives of future volunteers.
