ONE DC tenant members and residents at Brookland Manor request your support at a 5:00pm rally followed by a public Zoning Commission meeting on Monday, April 24, 2017. The location is 441 4th St NW and the closest metro station is Judiciary Sq (red line).
The Zoning Commission is expected to publicly discuss and announce their decision as to whether or not to continue to allow Mid-City to move forward with their plan to eliminate affordable housing in the midst of an affordable housing crisis, and to cut out desperately needed family sized units at Brookland Manor in Northeast Washington, D.C. Mid-City's plan is particularly egregious when one considers the fact that they are calling to cut family housing and affordable housing while simultaneously tripling density.
It is CRUCIAL that the public show up to demonstrate opposition to a plan that would displace families from the city or keep them warehoused in shelters, or forgotten in the streets. Working class Black communities are under attack across the city by wealthy developers, and the politicians who do their bidding. It is IMPERATIVE that the public hold the Zoning Commission accountable and stand in solidarity with the tenants of Brookland Manor who have led and continue to lead this struggle to preserve their right to the city.
