During the first ANC 5D safety walk of 2019, more than 100 neighbors, activists, and faith leaders gathered for a march along Benning Rd. NE to call for an end to gun violence in our community. Family members, ANC commissioners, pastors, and other leaders spoke to those gathered about the importance of taking a comprehensive approach to ending gun violence and the importance of community involvement.
Friends and family members of victims spoke about the pain caused by senseless violence. Neighbor joined in prayer and shared hugs. "It was good to just get it out. You know, the sadness and it was good to see that people cared," said one neighbor who lost her brother to gun violence late last year.
This won't be the last march held in ANCs 5D04 & 5D05. Commissioners Moore and Blacknell are planning to host a series of anti-violence summits and town hall forums, to inform the community about the new, approach being taken to address our community's ongoing challenges with violent crime. The commissioners will be working with the Office of Neighborhood Safety and Engagement, violence interrupters from the Office of the Attorney General, the Department of Behavioral Health, MPD and the Deputy Mayor of Public Safety to address the root problems that cause continued violence on our streets in the weeks and months to come.
The National Park Service (NPS) has launched a competitive solicitation for the lease of three Washington, D.C. golf courses and a tennis center, bringing an end to negotiations with the Federal City Council.
The federal agency has issued a request for information (RFI), the responses to which will be used to craft a formal solicitation for the lease and improvement of the East Potomac Tennis Center, East Potomac Golf Course, Langston Golf Course and Rock Creek Golf Course. It’s an all-or-none deal: No consideration will be given, per the request for information, “to interested parties who are not willing to lease and operate all premises under one lease.”
LCA encourages neighbors to get started sharing ideas for improvements that they'd like to see at the course now and share them with Comm. Sydelle Moore (5D05) and Comm. Bernice Blacknell (5D04) at the joint Carver/Langston SMD meeting on February 23, 2019 at 10am at the Patsy V. Hartsfield Center (2026 Maryland Ave. NE).
You should now call 311 for police non-emergencies. Before, 911 was for any police contact, now it is ONLY FOR EMERGENCIES. This changes starts NOW.
Police Non-Emergencies include, but aren't limited to the following:
City officials in the nation’s capital took steps Tuesday to expand the safety net for unpaid federal employees and contractors who are struggling to make ends meet as the partial government shutdown stretches into a second month.
The D.C. Council unanimously passed emergency legislation put forward by Cm. Anita Bonds to protect workers from losing their homes, while the Bowser administration found $2 million in emergency funds to help food stamp recipients.
Mayor Bowser also announced she was introducing legislation to give the city authority to grant unemployment benefits to federal employees forced to work without pay, such as TSA airport screeners and special police. Furloughed workers who are not being forced to work are already eligible for benefits. The U.S. Labor Department denied her request to authorize such benefits last week.
