Washington, DC's Restaurants Have a Great Plan to Help Women, LGBTQ People, and Immigrants During Inauguration
Donald Trump's inauguration is not exactly a moment in history that the feminist, LGBTQ, or immigrant communities have been looking forward to. But the All in Service D.C. campaign wants to change that.
Fifty-four restaurants, cafes, bars, salons, and other businesses have joined together and have pledged to donate their inauguration-weekend proceeds to charity. They're located all over the city — and include some of the city's top establishments.
Several participants have chosen to give their profits to Planned Parenthood. Between this and all the donations in Mike Pence's name, the Trump administration has already helped the health care organization more than it ever intended.
Other restaurants have promised to donate to LGBTQ organizations like The Trevor Project and immigration-related nonprofits like the Central American Resource Center and the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights.
"We are a team of people from the hospitality community, service workers, and restaurateurs who are making a statement of inclusion and love for community," the campaign's website reads. "As a service industry — like a gracious host — we welcome all."
