CASS is an amazing DC area non-profit that combats street harassment and assault. CASS is behind the prolific “You Deserve to be Respected” campaign you have likely seen while traveling in the Metro. It also provides anti-harassment training at bars and restaurants, increases public awareness, and advocates for policy changes.

Little Salon is one of the coolest events you can possibly attend in D.C. It brings old school salon performances by different artists to a different home in a different D.C. neighborhood every month. If you’re hoping to catch burlesque belly dancing, a reading by a local science writer, stand-up comedy, amazing visual art, free samples from local breweries, and Bulgarian choir singing all in one evening, Little Salon is the place for you.
