#SoutheastLove Day is tomorrow! Get your signs ready!

The Garber doing it up in Navy Yard
We're baaaaaaaaaaaack!

Tomorrow David Garber and I will be hitting the streets again to document our love and support for all things in the SE quadrant on both sides of the Anacostia river. Please join us in showing your support for SE by printing out your Southeast Love sign then pose in front of some of your favorite SE hangouts (if you can), then tweet the picture with #SoutheastLove. This is about spreading love, not fear about the SE quadrant.

David Garber (@GarberDC) and I (@TheAdvoc8te) will be kicking off our love train in Anacostia again, this time with our dear friend and NBC 4 reporter Danella Sealock (@DanellaNow). Follow us on Twitter! We will be looking for your tweets. :)

If you missed out on our first Southeast Love Day (which coincided nicely with Valentine's Day) go HERE. Including an excerpt from that post below along with some of my most favorite SoutheastLove pictures.

For many, Southeast DC is synonymous with "Anacostia" -- a small historic neighborhood within Southeast, "East of the River" -- the areas of DC on the southern and eastern side of the Anacostia River, which also includes Southwest and Northeast, and even "Scary." 
But the funny (and very real) thing is, Southeast DC encompasses a much greater slice of the city: Navy Yard, the Ballpark, Eastern Market, Capitol Hill, Hill East, the US House of Representatives, Fairlawn, Randall Highlands, Hillcrest, Congress Heights, and more. 
So we came up with an idea to celebrate all the great things about Southeast, and since it's Valentine's Day, start a little campaign all about love. We love Southeast, corner to corner, and know a lot of people feel the very same way. We'll be traveling around the quadrant today with our new sign, spreading the love with business owners, local officials, and residents of Southeast -- and even made a handy printable version for you to download and tweet/facebook/blog -- you don't have to actually live or work in Southeast to show the love!
