Please join us this Tuesday, May 24 for the Rally to Keep Capitol Hill Together. We’re meeting at Lincoln Park, 13th & East Capitol, at 5:45 pm and will march a few blocks down East Cap toward RFK for the rally (will begin at roughly 6:20-6:30 pm).
For many years, our Capitol Hill community has united in an effort to grow, and has succeeded – developing from a few blocks in the shadow of the Capitol into a vibrant, productive neighborhood. Today, the Hill not only encompasses the foundation of our nation’s history, but also includes Eastern Market, many bustling restaurants and businesses, successful schools and beautiful parks…stretching all the way to the Hill East Waterfront.
Now, the DC Council Redistricting Subcommittee is threatening to erase all of this hard work – by moving a signifcant portion of Hill East and its waterfront into Ward 7. Over the last several days, signs have been pointing to the fact that the redistricting map that will be released this Wednesday may split our neighborhood in half, placing residents east of 17th St. SE in Ward 7 and residents west of 17th St. SE in Ward 6. Please join Tuesday’s Rally and encourage your friends and neighbors to do the same. Bring signs! The stronger our voice, the better our chances.
Also, continue to call or email the councilmembers below – your 10 minutes now can help save our neighborhood’s collective voice.
