Come to DMI’s Annual Benefit!

benefit_08_badge.gif DMI's annual benefit is two weeks from tomorrow! This year we'll be awarding our annual Drum Major for Justice Award to David Simon, creator/writer/producer of HBO's "The Wire," for deftly exploring the realities of America's neglected cities. Mayor Byron Brown of Buffalo, a friend of DMI and impressive urban leader in his own right (check out his interview on MayorTV), will present the award. founder Steve Phillips and New York City Councilwomen Melissa Mark-Viverito will be honored as well.

Most importantly, this event is NOT a sit-down rubber-chicken dinner. It's like a cocktail reception plus - great mingling, passed food and drink, music, and the inspiration brought by our honorees. The event will be held at Cipriani 23 on Tuesday, May 20 from 6:30-8:30.

*Activist/student/blogger priced tickets are available.*
