next C.O.V.E. "Thursdays with the Ward 5 Candidates": Kenyan McDuffie and Tim Day

Coalition for Voter Empowerment (C.O.V.E.)

Is a voter education initiative, sponsored by a coalition of six civic associations of the West End of Ward 5 in Washington, D.C.

[Bates, Bloomingdale, Eckington, Edgewood, Hanover, and Stronghold Civic Associations]

C.O.V.E. was established in 2006 as a neighborhood coalition to empower and to educate the citizens of Ward 5 within the said civic association boundaries (who were otherwise left out of major outreach and educational opportunities) about the mayoral and Ward 5 Council electoral process.

C.O.V.E. addresses two major factors:
• The historic neglect of the ``West End`` of Ward 5
• The increasing influx of ``new residents`` to the neighborhood – some that may lack general knowledge about the D C politics and its impact on these communities; and the historical change and needs of Ward 5 in particular.

Just want to double check - this COVE event is being held at different location from the others, right? This week's meeting - April 5 - is in the school where the ANC/Special Ward 5 meeting was held in January? Enter from 100 block of P Street. Thanks.
