Rally For Racial Equity, Housing, and Jobs

Date: Saturday, March 17  from 10:00 a.m. to noon. Doors open at 9:30.

Where: Savoy Elementary Gym (2400 Shannon Pl, SE)

Each year our rally draws hundreds of District residents and advocates together to demonstrate our commitment to bettering the lives of all District residents. For low to moderate- income residents, that means access to jobs as part of a robust workforce, quality housing they can afford, all while building racial equity. We must continue working to ensure unprecedented investments in programs that build and preserve affordable homes, end chronic homelessness, create new opportunities for home ownership, train and recruit a strong workforce, and create jobs that lead to careers.
