For as long as it needs to, the Newseum is hanging up a banner to call for journalist Austin Tice’s return from captivity in Syria.

Partnering with Reporters Without Borders, the banner in front of the Newseum “will serve as a public reminder of the risks journalists face as they seek to bring accurate information to the world,” the museum said.

The unveiling ceremony is free and open to the public today at noon. (555 Pennsylvania Ave. NW).

#PinkOuttheVote

Planned Parenthood has launched its largest get-out-the-vote effort, which it calls “Pink Out the Vote.” The effort includes 250 events, 1,500 paid canvassers and 3,500 volunteers nationwide pushing for Hillary Clinton.

D.C. cultural note of the day

Now that Halloween is over, let’s talk Thanksgiving. Glen’s Garden Market has released a “Friendsgiving” shopping guide and Thanksgiving catering menu for this holiday season. It includes recommendations from seasonal snacks, beverage pairings, turkeys and vegetarian alternatives.

Visit the Dupont (2001 S St. NW) or Shaw (1924 8th St. NW) branches to pick one up.
