HERstory: Letter from the Mayor Bowser

Letter from the Mayor

Dear Washingtonians,

Last week, as we closed out Black History Month, I traveled to Selma, Alabama with Congressman John Lewis and a congressional delegation. The pilgrimage was an opportunity to commemorate and honor the heart wrenching and powerful events that led to the Voting Rights Act.

I came back home ready, certain, and more determined than ever to keep fighting for DC statehood. The lesson we were reminded of in Alabama: even in the face of great adversity, we press on.

Selma

Now, we carry that message with us throughout Women’s History (or HERstory) Month. We remember why we keep fighting for women’s equality – for social and economic justice; for better health outcomes for mothers and babies; for safe and affordable access to health care; and to close the pay gap, which disproportionately affects women of color and has persisted for too long.

In DC, we understand that our city’s history is black history, it is women’s history, and it is black women’s history. And, until all Washingtonians get the fair shot they deserve, together, we press on.

Sincerely,

Muriel Bowser

This week, Mayor Bowser announced plans for Lidl US to open its first store in Washington, DC at Skyland Town Center, an 18-acre site located in Ward 7 at the intersection of Good Hope Road, Naylor Road, and Alabama Avenue SE.

The Skyland Development Team secured the lease with Lidl US, a grocer that operates more than 65 stores across nine East Coast states. The store will be the first internationally recognized full-service supermarket to enter Wards 7 and 8 since 2007.

In January, the Mayor broke ground on Good Food Markets in the Bellevue community in Ward 8, making Lidl the second major announcement about bringing a new grocery store East of the River in the first six months of the Mayor’s second term.
