Shaw Community Social Justice Walking Tour

Due to rain, the tour has been rescheduled for Thursday, October 6th. Space is limited. RSVP is required.



ONE DC invites you to engage with us in a conversation and community learning process about displacement and resistance in DC, and how we organize for equitable development. ONE DC will show you the physical side of gentrification in the Shaw neighborhood and discuss its effects on the community, along with stories of how ONE DC organizes with residents to stand up for community-led, equitable development. Participants will have the opportunity to raise and discuss questions together, as well as tie learned experience to the Shaw story and context. We will explore the interconnectedness of the right to housing, the right to income, and the right to wellness. Participants will walk a little less than 1 mile total. Depending on questions and reflections, tour lasts about 75-90 minutes.We are presenting this tour free to residents as part of "What’s Going On: Voices of Shaw," a public art project that examines and celebrates the micro-cultures of Shaw through the voices and diverse lens of the community.
