    City of Trees at MLK Library in Washington DC

    We are honored that noted homeless advocate Eric Sheptock will host a screening of CITY OF TREES at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in downtown DC on Friday, March 3rd from 2-5pm.

    As the MLK library has long served as a central convening location and resource for many of the city's low-income residents seeking shelter and community during the day, Sheptock hopes the screening at the library will bring additional awareness and resources to the District's homeless community. Following the screening, Sheptock will lead a discussion focused on employment struggles facing District residents.
