Forty Under 40 2019 Nominations Now Open!
As 45 and Members of Congress continue the high stakes banter about the border wall, our neighbors in the Greater Washington region, especially in Prince George’s County, continue to be impacted by the government shutdown. Most of you have heard the news stories; may be experiencing this first hand; or you have seen the long depression-era lines of working families in search of food and other forms of assistance.
On the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, it is only fitting that we look to his words to guide our steps. His life and his legacy represent the importance of pressing forward to change and challenge federal policies that impact the poor, working class, and especially people of color. His life and legacy is one of vision, advocacy, and action. In his honor, I invite you each to consider several ways that we can support people impacted by the federal shutdown.

Forty Under 40 2018 The List!
Uh, what’s happening, PG?
They say you got your name from some King in Denmark
But that’s a temporary condition too
Can you dig it, PG?
This poem will not end up on a diss track
No east versus west
…maybe a little north versus south
I mean, This Is America…
