July 12 at 7 p.m. America's Opioid Crisis: A National Town Hall

Lisner Auditorium
730 21st St., NW
Free with RSVP by July 1

Last year, more than 30,000 Americans died from opioid addiction, but many more were either saved from overdose or identified by professionals in their community as needing intervention, treatment and recovery. In a national town hall sponsored by the Hazelden Betty Ford Institute for Recovery Advocacy in partnership with the Association of Recovery in Higher Education, experts will discuss how to reach those affected by the country’s deadly opioid addiction crisis. William Cope Moyers, VP of Communications at Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation and former CNN reporter will moderate the event.

Now-July 7 REFLECT: Photography Looking Forward, Looking Back

Luther Brady Art Gallery
805 21st St., NW 
Free

Reflections can be defined in numerous ways, from a physical mirror image to a contemplative thought on the past, to a resemblance to a person, place or thing. Reflections of all kinds, importantly, show us something of ourselves. Photographs from GW's Collection by Andy Warhol, Philippe Halsman, Sally Gall, Louis Faurer and Louis Stettner as well as selected work from local photographers Jackie Bailey Labovitz, Dave Scavone and Sandy Sugawara show some of these physical and ephemeral reflections in the Brady Art Gallery’s new exhibition.
