Corryn Freeman, pictured here, a senior at Howard University organized a protest in which DC shadow Senator Michael Brown was one of three arrested in an act of civil disobedience outside the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington DC on April 15, 2011. Brown joined the youth day Tax Protest targeting Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) who earlier in a budget deal with Republicans put restrictions on the District's ability to fund abortions providers. Also participating in the protest were DC Vote, an educational and advocacy organization dedicated to securing full voting representation in Congress and full democracy for the residents of the District of Columbia. DC Mayor Vincent Gray, who had been arrested at a similar protest earlier in the week, spoke to the group. (Photo by Jeff Malet)
