The Passing of The Honorable Marion S. Barry Jr.
River East Emerging Leaders (r.e.e.l.) has released the following statement on the death of Ward 8 Councilmember and former DC Mayor Marion S. Barry Jr.:
"We are indeed saddened by the sudden passing of Councilmember Marion Barry. The legendary former DC mayor and civil rights icon had an immeasurable impact on the communities of Ward 8 and our great city. DC had no bigger champion for our seniors, youth, returning citizens, minority-owned businesses, DC voting rights and jobs than Barry. A supporter of r.e.e.l., we were excited by his renewed interest in increasing economic development opportunities and homeownership levels throughout the great Ward 8. And we can't forget how open and honest he was reflecting on his political career during several speaker series and events with r.e.e.l. members and the community."

WASHINGTON, D.C. (August 5, 2013)—With America facing a growing shortage of minorities and women entering science, technology, math and engineering (STEM) careers, a locally-based summer camp is out to change the disturbing trend by exposing more young people to STEM fields. Twenty incoming seventh, eighth and ninth graders will see these careers up close during the East of the River Career Exposure Camp August 5-10, 2013 at the Southeast White House in Washington, D.C.
