Dr. Jill Stein, GPUS Presidential Candidate, will be in the Northern Virginia/DC area, mid-January. We have scheduled a house party so people can get to know Jill better. We’ll meet at the home of John Reeder. We’ll have snacks and drinks. If you can, please rsvp to [email protected]. Even if you haven’t let us know, come anyway. We’re just trying to get a rough estimate of attendance.

Driving directions: from Lee Highway and Harrison Street go south on Harrison Street to 18th Street; go right onto 18th Street and go 3 blocks to a right onto Huntington Street. The house is the third house on the left.
