Empower the Community Weekend 2019


On August 10, 2019 Capitol Petroleum Group was proud to be a co-sponsor to the annual Empower the Community Weekend in Washington, DC. The event, held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, brings together the largest East African community in the Washington DC metro area. The event provides entertainment, panel discussions, empowering information on education, arts, finance, health & wellness, giveaways and much more. It’s focused on providing resources and family centered activities. One of this year's panels included Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota's 5th Congressional District: the first Somali- American member of the US House of Representatives. Check out some of the photos from the event below!
