One City (In Crisis) Summit

Thanks to everyone who came out to Monday’s One City (in Crisis) Summit! Over 140 DC residents attended to hear powerful speeches from community members, social workers, and Councilmembers.

However, the Mayor is days away from finalizing his budget – so it’s especially urgent to making our voices heard in demanding a just and inclusive budget.

Tomorrow, please plan to participate in a call-in day to Mayor Vincent Gray’s office to remind him that health, education, workplace supports, and public safety are essential to truly making One City a reality. With DC’s income inequality among the nation’s highest, now is not the time to cut safety net supports for the city’s most marginalized residents.

Here are Revenue Option recommendations from the DC Fiscal Policy Institute about ways DC can generate revenue for essential social services.
