RALLY FOR LOW INCOME & PUBLIC HOUSING!

Monday, March 16th – 4:45 PM 
Outside of the Mayor’s ‘State of the District Address’
UDC Theater of the Arts – Connecticut & Windom Pl, NW (Van Ness Metro)

This Monday Mayor Muriel Bowser will hold her annual State of the District Address.  No doubt she will tout her investments in ‘affordable housing’ and promote her plan to add another 36,000 housing units to the city by 2025.

Join us to demand that the Mayor do more to secure housing for DC’s lowest income residents. 
 

What you might not know about Mayor Bowser’s annual $100 million contribution to the city’s Housing Production Trust Fund is that not one penny of that goes to secure DC’s public housing stock.  In fact, the Mayor has known for years that public housing needed local investment to address mold, lead and other conditions issues that threaten residents’ health – yet she has failed to allocate local money for needed repairs.  

The DC Housing Authority (DCHA) recently announced it needs $350 million to address urgent conditions issues within its properties, and over a billion dollars to secure public housing long term.  DCHA is now justifying the privatization of 2,500 units of public housing on the lack of such funding – and positioning itself to privatize even more units beyond that.
 

DC NEEDS PUBLIC HOUSING – it’s the only permanently affordable, low barrier family housing that we have left.  Mayor Bowser needs to make saving public housing – and other deeply affordable housing for our lowest income families – her top priority.  The city can easily afford to do it.  The city’s “rainy day fund” alone contains $2.7 billion dollars.  

Join us to tell Mayor Bowser to stop the displacement of Black and brown DC residents, and invest in the deeply affordable housing that we need the most!  She should start by investing $350 million to make urgent repairs to public housing, and then develop a strategy to invest in, improve, preserve and expand – not privatize – our city’s public housing stock.

Rally with us outside ahead of her State of the District Address from 4:45-5:30, when her event starts.  If you’d like to go inside to attend the State of the District, you can reserve your tickets here.

Let us know if you will join us by contacting Parisa at (202) 234-9119 x 100 or parisa@empowerdc.org.

Do you want more tools to connect with your audience on Instagram? Have you heard about Instagram creator accounts?

In this article, you’ll learn how switching to an Instagram creator account can help you better achieve your Instagram marketing goals.
Instagram Creator Accounts: What Marketers Need to Know by Jenn Herman on Social Media Examiner.

What Is an Instagram Creator Account?

When Instagram first launched, everyone had a personal account. As the platform evolved, Instagram introduced business profiles to give brands more access to tools like Insights, profile action buttons, and better direct message features. Many bigger brands and influencers have continued to ask for more insights and details on their audiences along with other features.

As a result, Instagram introduced creator accounts. This account type is currently limited to accounts with more than 10,000 followers that are also connected to a Facebook business page. As of this writing, Creator Studio is also limited to a beta testing phase, which means it’s not available to everyone.
