+MPU D.C. Brickyard: National Portrait Gallery

National Portrait Gallery

+ More Perfect Union is a nationwide movement to strengthen our communities and heal our country by creating meaningful connections through service and leadership.

We form local chapters called Brickyards, where Americans of all backgrounds come together connecting through events like potlucks, service opportunities, and more. Through these +MPU experiences, we discover we aren’t so different from each other through our intentional conversations.

+MPU Washington, D.C. is hosting a Brickyard event at the National Portrait Gallery on January 25, 2023.

Join us for a viewing of the Portrait a Nation exhibit and a group discussion about the art through the lens of what the American Dream means to you. Ben Bain, +MPU Washington DC Brickyard Co-Founder, will lead the group through the exhibit and end with a free meal at a nearby Cava. The event will begin at 6pm and end at 8pm.

+MPU Brickyards events connect local leaders with members of their community by sharing their experiences and breaking bread together.

Washington, D.C. has always been a place of compromise. Born as the beating heart of American democracy, D.C. has long been a symbol of what we can achieve when we come together, and what can go wrong when division takes the place of connectedness in our communities.

The D.C. Brickyard is led by Ben Bain, Jaelin Lespier, and Ryan Smither.
