Community Service Project
At Washington Institute 2016, we’ll be collecting donations of toiletries and new pairs of adult socks to donate to Casa Ruby. Casa Ruby is the only grassroots multicultural LGBT center in Washington, DC, operating a drop-in center and safe space with hot meals, clothing exchange, career development, and social services to transgender, genderqueer, gender nonconforming, gay, lesbian, and bisexual people in the Washington, DC area. Collection boxes will be located at Washington Institute registration throughout the conference.
