Langston Civic Association president, Sydelle Moore and member, Ms. Juanita Diggs were honored with seats on stage during Mayor Bowser's 2018 State of the District Address. The association has been recognized as a diverse and active group that is having a positive impact on residents' lives.
Ms. Moore and Ms. Diggs listened as Mayor Bowser outlined some of her priorities including increased spending on public safety initiatives like a 42% increase in the number of MPD cadets, full support for the newly established Office of Neighborhood Safety and Engagement (ONSE) as part of the NEAR Act and Dept. of Behavioral Health (DBH) specialists focused on street-level drug intervention (3 of these specialists will be assigned to the Langston neighborhood).
