As many of your know, there was a shooting at the Exxon gas station, 1700 block of Monroe, Streets, NE, yesterday at approximately 7:42 pm. Four individuals were shot, 3 injured and one fatality. In the past few years Commissioner Ursula Higgins has worked with MPD, Councilman McDuffie, and EOM to combat the shootings that have taken place in our community. There has been gun shots in the area, but never a fatality or injury. It is time for us to stand up and take back our community. We need to stand in unity to provide safety, show love for our fellow neighbor.
It is time, how many people are going to stand with me to protect our neighbors, friends, and family? WE NEED YOUR HELP, all of your help!
Let's meet at the basketball courts at Taft/Dwight Mosely on Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 6:00 pm, please come with ideas, and solutions.
Right now, the cost of childcare in the District of Columbia is higher than anywhere else in the entire country. Yes, you read that right! Let’s work together to change that!
MomsRising is partnering with the Universal Childcare Now Coalition to make sure that D.C. leaders understand the early learning needs, including pre-k and childcare, of D.C. families. We'll also be decorating baby bib with messages about the need for affordable childcare and pre-k to be delivered to City Council Members. So let’s make it a playdate! Tell us what you think in person — and bring your children. We’ll have food, juice boxes, kid-friendly space, and lots to talk about.
