Picture Perfect Photo Shoot

elizabeth, our photographer Six NEW residents and program graduates recently participated in a beautiful portrait session with photographer Elizabeth Dranitzke of Photopia. We held the session in the lovely, tranquil space at Tabula Rasa on Barracks Row. The portraits will grace the walls in community areas of our new 611 N Street building, scheduled to open in December 2012. 

Very special thanks to all who so generously donated their time and talents to make the portrait session a wonderful success:

Hair Stylist: Judy Washington

Event Space: Amanda Clarke, Tabula Rasa

It’s been a challenging time for all of us as we adjust our days, our budgets and our expectations to COVID-19. And now, add a city and country grasping for footing after the death of an unarmed black man by a white police officer and we all feel even more out of control, unstable, and concerned about the future. Here at NEW we know that one way we can process our own feelings is to think about the needs and feelings of others.

We need you. The women need you. Your community needs you. Now more than ever women and children in DC need a safe and stable place to live.
