Letter from the Mayor

Dear Washingtonians,

My Administration is committed to building a safer, stronger DC. During our first two years in office, total crime in the District fell by nine percent, and this year, violent crime is down 24 percent. While we celebrate this progress, we also recognize that there is more work to be done and that it will not all be accomplished solely through law enforcement.

Washington, DC has the most dedicated and talented police force in the country, and we continue to create new programs and initiatives that will help us recruit and retain high-quality officers to serve our community. But building a safer, stronger, and healthier city requires the entire community’s support.

This week, in addition to announcing new technology that residents can use to better help each other during cardiac emergencies, I was proud to celebrate the opening of our new Safer Stronger DC Office of Neighborhood Safety and Engagement. Through this new office, we are taking a public health approach to violence prevention. By collaborating across multiple agencies, the Safer Stronger DC Office of Neighborhood Safety and Engagement will remove barriers to opportunity, directly engage some of our hardest to reach and most at-risk residents, and de-escalate feuds before they turn violent.

By working together, we will continue connecting more Washingtonians to the services they need to thrive. Thank you for supporting this important work.

Sincerely,

Muriel Bowser

‘Baby Daddy’ Father’s Day Card Featuring a Black Couple Slammed by Shoppers

“Baby Daddy” is a term used to refer to a man who is the father of a woman’s child whom she did not marry. American Greetings, the world’s biggest producer of greeting cards, decided to create cards for Father’s Day with a “Baby Daddy” theme and feature a silhouette of a Black man and woman.

President and Chief Executive Officer John W. Beeder, who began his position in April, leads American Greetings, headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio. Beeder is at the helm of an all-white executive leadership team.

The inside of the “Baby Daddy” card says, “You’re a wonderful husband and father — and I’m so grateful to have you as my partner, my friend, and my baby daddy! Happy Father’s Day.”

However, it was the only card that featured a Black couple, inferring that “Baby Daddy” status is particular to Black men.
