October 24: Free housing advocacy workshop
APACC member 11th Street Bridge Park and friends CNHED and BRIDGES are inviting those interested in ensuring longtime residents can benefit from development and not be pushed out to a free workshop on housing advocacy. The event takes place Wednesday, October 24, 6:00-8:00 pm at Anacostia Library (1800 Good Hope Rd SE). Register: bit.ly/housing-advocacy or (202) 670-6995.
Why we care
Equitable redevelopment of the Anacostia River Corridor, particularly ensuring that changes benefit and improve the lives and livelihoods of both current and future residents, is a central principle in APACC’s work. Changes—aka improvements—impact housing in a major way, too often pricing current residents out of the housing market. Like the workshop sponsors, APACC believes policies and practices must make a concerted effort to protect those who have lived close to the Anacostia River and Anacostia Park throughout the development process.
