The Peace Ball will take place at the National Museum of African American History and Culture and is being organized by Andy Shallal, the owner of Busboys and Poets.
Shallal describes the event as a celebration of art, activism, and reflection.
“Over the last four years, there’s been progress on marriage equality, criminal justice reform, and health care,” said Shallal. “We don’t always take the time to stand back and look at this great stuff and celebrate.”
