Upcoming Events

  • People's Platform: Link Up for Brookland Manor

    ONE DC People's Platform is a monthly political education event that brings together our base. In September, as part of the nationwide Renter's Week of Action, the People's Platform will focus on Principle #4: government transparency, accountability, & participatory democracy. We will hear about community-led strategies to pressure the city to take action in the fight against displacement, gentrification and the skyrocketing cost of living. This event will include music by local DJs, free food, and an art pop-up, with for-sale pieces and a silent auction to benefit ONE DC.

    The People’s Platform is a movement of low-income and working class DC residents of color and people who share our values and vision. We seek to organize, educate, fight for and win truly affordable housing, sustaining work, and wellness for all in DC. Our monthly People's Platform general body is a space where we work towards our goals by prioritizing political education and leadership development in our work; centering the leadership of working class black women; being funded by our base; always seeking to build a deeper analysis and assessing our work; building alternative institutions; learning from past movement's successes and limitations; championing non-reformist reforms; and always seeking to be a part of a broader movement that is multi-national, multi-ethnic, multi-gender, and multi-class.
