The Eaton DC hotel which is where some of the 2020 Women's March planning events were held. We also had some events for the Environmental Film Festival there. The 209-room Eaton DC opened in November 2018 as “the world’s first activist hotel.” The hotel’s owner Katherine Lo, is the daughter of Lo Ka Shui, the billionaire owner of Great Eagle Holdings, the umbrella company for Langham Hotels. Great Eagle Holdings is a Hong Kong real estate company. It switched its registration to Bermuda in 1990, perhaps as a way of avoiding the expected Chinese take over of Hong Kong.

The hotel always features progressive artwork on the 12th and K side of the building. I hadn't seen this one before. "Let Love Quiet Fear", with a credit to ForFreedoms. For Freedoms' website ( https://forfreedoms.org/ ) says "For Freedoms is an artist-led organization that models and increases creative civic engagement, discourse and direct action. We work with artists and organizations to center the voices of artists in public discourse, expand what participation in a democracy looks like, and reshape conversations about politics."
