People's Platform Mayoral Forum

On March 8, 2014, ONE DC will be holding a mayoral forum to let DC's next mayor, whoever they may be, know what we demand for a fair and equitable DC.

Our proud co-sponsors include Barry Farm Study Circle, Empower DC, Our DC, DC Working Families, DC Jobs with Justice, Employment Justice Center, Fair Budget Coalition, & ROC-DC.

DC residents will moderate the forum and candidates will respond to questions from the People's Platform, which has been crafted from the demands of YOU, the residents!

Some of these principles include:
Our Right to Housing - Longtime residents are increasingly being displaced from DC by rising rents, luxury developments, and the demolition of public housing.

We will support candidates who stand for:

  • Deeper Affordability in All New Developments
  • Development of Limited Equity Housing Cooperatives
  • The Protection and Preservation of Public Housing

Our Right to Income  - Washington’s economic successes are not shared with our unemployed and low wage workers, who are disproportionately people of color.

We will support candidates who stand for:

  • A Minimum Wage that is Truly a Living Wage
  • First Source Reform with Clawback Provisions
  • Legislation to Prevent Firing for Unjust Reasons

Our Right to _______. What do you want to demand for an equitable DC? What is YOUR vision for DC?

Thank you to THEARC for hosting this event.
