We will march in solidarity with community members disproportionately impacted by gun violence, followed by a family friendly “block party” including music, a community art project and snacks as we raise awareness and honor with action the far too many lives lost. We have significant community support for this event and are partnering with groups like Communities United Against Hate, Youth Creating Change, MoCo Studnets for Change, MoCo Brady Campaign, MoCoWomen, Do the Most Good MoCo, and the Interfaith Network to Prevent Gun Violence. More organizations are signing on every day, as we reach out to the LGBTQIA+, Muslim, Jewish, Sikh, African American, Latino and other communities disproportionately impacted by hate crimes and gun violence.
The goal is to have a diverse group of neighbors stand together in love and solidarity. We would love your assistance in spreading the word to your community partners!

Bob Levey (SLM 2012) is proud to announce the publication of his new novel, LARRY FELDER, CANDIDATE.
It’s the story of a famous Washington newspaper columnist (Felder) who abandons journalism to run for Congress in Maryland’s Eighth District (Montgomery County).
Larry’s path gets complicated by oh-so-many things—love, corruption, those pesky reporters and the unforeseen. But the good guys win in the end, and loyalty wins most of all.
Bob Levey spent more than 36 years on the staff of The Washington Post. His daily column, “Bob Levey’s Washington,” ran for more than 23 years. Bob has also had long parallel careers as a TV talk show host, a radio commentator and a college professor. LARRY FELDER, CANDIDATE is his first novel.
And no, good heavens no, he isn’t running for Congress.
He ran for the student council in the sixth grade and lost. That either cooled his ambitions or knocked some sense into him—whichever way you’d care to read it.
LARRY FELDER, CANDIDATE is full of characters and scenes that will be very familiar to the LM family. It is set at various times at the Hyatt Regency Bethesda, the neighborhood near Montgomery Mall, downtown Wheaton and the Capital Crescent Trail. Besides Larry, you’ll meet an array of characters who are very contemporary and very Washington—the successful Montgomery businessman, the crusty newspaper editor, the Girl Friday on Capitol Hill and the super-ambitious young reporter, among others.
