As we continue the fight to hold Walmart accountable in DC, I wanted to let you know about an opportunity to stand in solidarity with our neighbors in Montgomery County who are facing a similar fight.
Walmart is trying to build a new store in Aspen Hill, just north of DC. Walmart and the developer are trying to get the Montgomery County Council to rapidly re-zone the property so Walmart can build there.
Many residents are opposed to this, so tomorrow, Tuesday, April 30th, at 11:30am, we will be joining our allies there in presenting a petition with nearly 2,000 signatures to Montgomery County Councilmembers saying Walmart is not right for Aspen Hill. You can view and sign the petition here.
Join us tomorrow! The Montgomery County Council is at 100 Maryland Avenue, Rockville, MD 20850. If you need a ride, we’ll be leaving from DC around 10:30 and arrive back by 1:30. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to come but need a ride. It is also about 4 blocks from Rockville Metro station on the Red Line.
