About the Venue

We're proud to be meeting at historic Red Cross Square, the National Headquarters of the American Red Cross. All activities will be held in the building on E Street facing the North side of Red Cross Square. This building is dedicated with the words "IN MEMORY OF THE HEROIC WOMEN OF THE WORLD WAR" on the frieze above the main entrance. During the event, you will have an opportunity to donate blood in the Dr. Charles H. Drew Blood Donation Center on the garden level of our venue and/or join a private 30-minute tour of the Red Cross archives which includes a visit to our famous Tiffany windows, a special exhibit on Red Cross during WWI, and a permanent exhibit of Clara Barton's Civil War field kit and personal effects.

For blood donations, please make an appointment in advance at RedCrossBlood.org as walk-in appointments are limited. Search by zip code 20006, select Dr. Charles H. Drew Blood Donation Center and filter results for the dates you'll be on-site.
