DFKDC is suspending in person programming through June 30th, 2020. We are doing our part to help ensure the safety of our wonderful community by following the DC Health Advisory’s recommendation to postpone or cancel non-essential mass gatherings to help stem the current outbreak. Please click here to read our full statement on our COVID-19 response.
As we mentioned in our official statement, we are working on at-home activities for our participants.
