Natalie Avery is a local activist who has always impressed me. She's been involved in many Mount Pleasant neighborhood organizing activities for a couple decades.
... at one Mount Pleasant neighborhood outdoor music event I attended a number of years ago, Ian MacKaye was the sound technician. How cool is that?
He did a presentation a few years ago that I unfortunately missed, on the importance of community social halls as a necessary element in supporting the development of the punk music genre in DC
