Wow!! A huge thank you to all who came out on Saturday to make our first ONE DC People's Assembly a success!
At the People's Assembly, our goals were to develop a shared understanding of the struggles we face, decide what should we do about them, and build our power to take collective action.
Through participatory processes, these campaign demands emerged:
Right to Housing: prioritize the preservation and creation of family-sized units with longtime affordability at 0-30% AMI that includes protecting rent control and housing alternatives to vouchers
Right to Income: get rid of tax breaks to corporations and developers and funnel those resources to the development of worker cooperatives
Neighborhood & Worker Defense: create community-controlled alternatives that address access to food, housing, childcare, and recreation
The People's Assembly was an important step in a larger movement-building process. Now we need YOU to join us in building out the next steps.
Here's what's next:
- Organizing Meeting - Join us Thursday, February 13 at 6:30 PM at the ONE DC office for our next Organizing Meeting where we will start the process of building out a strategy for the campaign demands we outlined above that emerged out of the People's Assembly.
- Member Orientation - Tuesday, February 11. Are you new to ONE DC? Join us to find out more about our mission, values, and history, and what it means to be a ONE DC member.
- Annual Membership Meeting. Save the Date for Saturday, March 14! Between now and then, ONE DC members will be meeting regularly to develop a strategy for each campaign. At the Annual Membership Meeting, the campaign strategies will be presented for feedback and approval from the Membership.
Finally, to build a strong people-powered movement, we need strong and powerful organizations. Become a ONE DC member by paying your 2020 membership dues today.
