Campaigns We Support
Brookland Manor Residents
Oppose the 2nd stage PUD and publicly affirm our commitment to Brookland Manor residents in helping them achieve their reasonable and viable demands to protect their homes and to preserve affordable housing for families and working class people of color in Washington, DC.
Public Restrooms Campaign
Ensure that clean, safe public restrooms are available to everyone 24/7 in downtown areas of Washington DC.
Barry Farms Residents
We find that there are too many outstanding questions and concerns remaining with the Barry Farm redevelopment, and it must not move forward as planned. We are calling on government officials to assume responsibility for protecting the rights of vulnerable, low income Barry Farm residents immediately!
DC Fair Elections
One person, one vote: That’s how we’re taught elections in our democracy are supposed to work. Except these days there's another election: Call it the money election. And in the money election, most people don’t have any say at all. Instead, a few super-wealthy individuals and corporations back the candidates they think will raise enough money to run the kind of high-priced campaign it takes to win.
Expand the unlimited bus and rail component of the School Transit Subsidy program (Kids Ride Free) to all District residents enrolled in publicly funded adult education programs.
TANF is a Lifeline
The DC TANF time limit is one of the strictest in the country, cutting off all families who reach the time limit and eliminating the possibility for them to receive assistance in the future, regardless of their circumstance. In contrast, 44 states offer extensions to give parents more time to address problems such as domestic violence or caring for a family member with a disability. We are a working group of impacted residents, advocates and government officials working to reform the time limit policy.
